Date Nut Bread

I will admit I am not really a fan of dates or nuts in bread, so this bread was not my favorite.  It is, however, my dad's favorite.  So if you like date nut bread, this is a good recipe.  


  • 1 1/2 cups chopped dates
  • 1 1/2 cups hot water
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup coarsely chopped walnuts (I used almonds)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  1. In a bowl, combine the dates, water and butter; let stand for 5 minutes. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, walnuts, baking soda and salt. Stir in the eggs, vanilla and date mixture just until moistened. Pour into two greased 8-in. x 4-in. x 2-in. loaf pans. Bake at 375 degrees F for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cover loosely with foil if top browns to quickly. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. 
* I added an extra tsp. of butter to make it more moist
