This is my great-grandmother’s recipe, and it’s a good and easy one!
- 1 cup dates, cut into pieces.
- 1 tsp soda
- 1 cup boiling water
- butter, size of an egg
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- Sprinkle one level tsp soda over dates and pour on 1 cup boiling water. While cooling, cream 1 cup brown sugar and butter size of an egg. Add 1 tsp vanilla, pour dates into batter and add 1 1/2 cups flour.
- Bake slowly for one hour, try about 250′ or so.
