  • 1 cup of boiling water
  • 1 8-ounce package of dates - cut into small pieces
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 4-ounce stick of butter - melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour - sifted

In a large mixing bowl, pour the boiling water over the dates. Add baking soda, stir and let set for 5 minutes.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prepare a loaf pan with a generous coating of cooking spray.

Add all remaining ingredients to the mixing bowl and mix well. Transfer batter to loaf pan and bake for 45 minutes until golden brown and a toothpick or knife inserted into the center comes out clean.
