“This is a recipe from Milwaukee,Wisconsin. It is is a favorite of mine. I bake it in cans, so the loaves are round. Very nice when you make up GOODIE baskets, especially liked by elderly people.”

Directions

  1. Put dates, raisins, oleo, and baking soda in a large bowl.
  2. Pour the boiling water over this mixture. Mix then let cool.
  3. Beat 2 eggs, sugar, and vanilla until creamy.
  4. Add the cooled mixture alternately with the flour.Stir in nuts.
  5. Bake in 3-1# cans that have been well greased.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-55 minutes.
  7. 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.
  8. These freeze well. When baking these, I usually double the recipe and freeze half for gifts.
  9. This is delicious! It does not taste at all like the can stuff in the store.
