Date Nut Bread

Date Nut Bread is such a moist and delicious bread.  It is one of my favorites.  It's even good for breakfast!

1 1/2 cups boiling water
1 1/2 cups chopped dates, cut in large pieces
2 tsp baking soda
3 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
2 TBS butter
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 eggs

Pour boiling water over dates.  Add baking soda.  Mix and let cool.

Stir together flour, salt and walnuts.  Set aside.
Cream together butter, brown sugar & vanilla.  Blend in eggs; beat well.  Add dry ingredients alternately with date mixture (beginning and ending with dry ingredients).  Blend well after each addition.  Grease the bottom of one 9x5x3 loaf pan; pour in mixture.  Bake at 350 for 1 hour.
