Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine the baking soda and the boiling water and pour over the dates in a mixing bowl. Let cool to lukewarm. Add the brown sugar, eggs, oil and vanilla, mixing well with a wooden spoon.
  2. Sift the flour with the salt and baking powder. Sift into the date mixture and stir until it is well-mixed; batter will be lumpy. Fold in walnuts. Pour batter into greased 9-inch-by-5-inch loaf pan and bake for 65 to 80 minutes or until tester comes out clean.
  3. Remove from pan while still warm. Combine ingredients for glaze, boil together for two minutes and brush on top warm date nut bread. Cool on wire rack.
