DIRECTIONS

  • Put dates, raisins, oleo, and baking soda in a large bowl.
  • Pour the boiling water over this mixture. Mix then let cool.
  • Beat 2 eggs, sugar, and vanilla until creamy.
  • Add the cooled mixture alternately with the flour.Stir in nuts.
  • Bake in 3-1# cans that have been well greased.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 45-55 minutes.
  • Cool slightly, then run a butter knife around the inside edge of can to loosen bread. Pull out gently and wrap while still partly warm in plastic wrap. This keeps the round loaves moist.
  • These freeze well. When baking these, I usually double the recipe and freeze half for gifts.
  • This is delicious! It does not taste at all like the can stuff in the store.
