Recipe by Aubergine910

This recipe came from a choir member more years ago than I wish to remember. It is the only date nut bread my family will eat. I'm putting it here for safe keeping as I have worn out several recipe cards for this one. While the ingredients may be the same as other breads, the preparation method is totally different. It will make 2 - 3 standard sized loaves and sometimes it may take a bit longer than the stated bake time. Prep time includes cooling time before baking. Cooking time includes the boiling and cooling time during prep.
