Date Bread

Here's a recipe for some SUPER YUMMY date bread I made yesterday from my new cookbook I won {from a blog giveaway!} called "Mennonite Women Can Cook". As I flipped through it, I found a bunch of other yummy-looking recipes I'll be trying soon!...

1. Place chopped dates and brown sugar in a large glass or metal bowl.
2. Pour boiling water over date mixture
3. Add baking soda and stir well until the foaming stops. Let stand for 15 minutes.
4. Beat aggs and combine dry ingredients; add both to date mixture.
5. Pour into 2 greased loaf pans.
6. Bake ยบ325 F for 50-60 minutes, or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
7. Let stand for 5 minutes before removing to a cooling rack. Freezes well.
