Great Grand Mom's Fruit Cake
Combine dates, butter, brown sugar, molasses, and hot water in a heavy 2-quart saucepan. Bring mixture to a slow boil, stirring constantly. Boil for 3-1/2 minutes; transfer to a large stainless-steel bowl and let mixture cool for 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Add beaten eggs, candied fruit, and walnuts to cooled mixture and slowly beat with an electric mixer for 2 minutes, making sure that all ingredients are thoroughly mixed. Sift all dry ingredients together and very slowly add to the fruit mixture, mixing constantly until the batter is well blended.
Butter and lightly flour 2 full-size loaf pans and knock off any excess flour. Fill loaf pans equally and bake for 1-1/2 hours. Remove from oven and cool for about 15 minutes; remove from loaf pans and place on cooling rack. Allow loaves to cool 1 hour. Pour 1 ounce of brandy over loaves and seal in plastic wrap. Repeat the brandy soak at least 2 more times before serving.
