Date Nut Bread

Yield: 1 loaf Pan: 9" x 5" x 3"

  • 2 cups sifted enriched flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder ( 1 tbs + 1 tsp. )
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 each egg, beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup margarine, melted
  • 1 cup walnuts, finely chopped
  • 1 cup chopped dates

1. Sift together the dry ingredients, flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.

2. Combine the wet ingredients, egg, milk and melted shortening.

3. Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture, stirring just until flour is well moistened, but not totally smooth. A few small lumps are OK.

4. Fold in nuts and dates. Pour into greased, lined loaf pan, 9" x 5" x 3"

5. Bake in moderate oven (350 F) for 1 hour. Cool 5-10 minutes before removing from pan. Makes 1 one-pound loaf

NB: "One cup walnuts, finely chopped" means chop the walnuts after measuring. One cup chopped dates means chop the dates, then measure them. A little of the flour on the dates helps when chopping.
