Here is a TNT recipe my Mother-In -Law gave me. It is very moist and oh so good.
Date Nut Bread 2 cups apple juice 2 cups chopped pitted dates 2 cups white sugar 3 cups sifted all purpose flour 2 tsp. soda 2/3 cup butter 1/8 tsp. salt 1 tsp. vanilla 2 eggs 2 cups chopped nuts ( walnuts or pecans)
Bring the apple juice to a boil and then pour over the dates, set aside. Cream butter and sugar until a light yellow. Add eggs and mix well. Sift flour, soda, and salt together , then add to creamed mixture. Alternate with vanilla and date water mixture. Add dates and pecans. Grease and flour 2 loaf pans. Bake at 275 for 1 hr. 45 mins. or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. While still warm wrap in wax paper and clean towel, this helps it to stay really moist. Makes 2 large loaves or 7 mini loaves.
I do hope you will try it as it really is yummy. Jeannie from Henderson, Texas. Printed in Nancy's Kitchen Newsletter, September 2, 2006
