Yield: 1 loaf Pan: 9" x 5" x 3"
1. Sift together the dry ingredients, flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.
2. Combine the wet ingredients, egg, milk and melted shortening.
3. Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture, stirring just until flour is well moistened, but not totally smooth. A few small lumps are OK.
4. Fold in nuts and dates. Pour into greased, lined loaf pan, 9" x 5" x 3"
5. Bake in moderate oven (350 F) for 1 hour. Cool 5-10 minutes before removing from pan. Makes 1 one-pound loaf
NB: "One cup walnuts, finely chopped" means chop the walnuts after measuring. One cup chopped dates means chop the dates, then measure them. A little of the flour on the dates helps when chopping.
