1 c. chopped dates
1/2 c. chopped nuts
2 Tbsp. orange juice
1 1/2 c. boiling water
2 Tbsp. shortening
1 c. brown sugar
1 egg or 2 yolks
2 1/2 c. sifted flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. vanilla

Pour water over dates; let stand 10 minutes. Add soda.
Cream shortening, sugar, egg and add to dates. Mix baking
powder with flour and sift. Add remainder of ingredients. Mix
well. Pour in a paper lined loaf pan and bake in 325 degrees oven for
1 hour. If you let stand for 20 minutes, this helps to prevent
cracking on top before placing in oven.
