    Emmame's Note:

    This recipe was my grandmother's and the smell of this cake baking is the smell of Christmas to our family! It is a very dense, heavy cake, almost more like a bread, and loaded with dates, cherries and nuts. We usually use home-grown black walnuts in ours! Do not be intimidated by the number of steps it takes to make this cake-it actually goes together very quickly and is well worth the trouble.
