DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350F; spray a loaf pan with nonstick baking spray like Pam, and set aside.
  • In a small bowl or measuring cup, pour boiling water over baking soda so that soda dissolves.
  • Place dates in a mixing bowl and pour water/soda mixture over dates; let cool.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.
  • In a different bowl, beat the egg with an electric mixer, then slowly add the brown sugar, beating well after each addition.
  • To the egg/sugar mixture, add cooled date mixture, toasted nuts and vanilla; mix well.
  • Stir in the dry ingredients.
  • Now, add the melted butter and mix well.
  • Pour this mixture into the prepared pan and bake in preheated oven for approximately 55 minutes, or until loaf tests done.
  • Let cool 10 minutes before removing from pan, then cool completely on a rack.
