    Bergy's Note:

    This was my playmate's mother's recipe Oh how I loved this date loaf! (Doris Eppinger --neeAllen). After school if we were lucky we'd get a slice. I hope it tastes as good now as it did 63 years ago.

      Amazing. For an healthier version... 1/2 the sugar, use whole wheat flour, use oil instead of butter and add an extra table spoon. Measure the dates once chopped and pack the cup. Easy to double up the recipe to get two loaves for the same amount of work. Walnuts in there were delicious!
