Heritage Recipe

Date Cake

This recipe came from my husband's mother. She received it from her sister, Mrs. Frank Fay (Mamie Miller), who lived in Hayden, Arizona (now a part of Phoenix) in about 1924. The Fay family was from Rapid City, South Dakota. ... Patti

We make these cakes in November for Christmas. Sometimes I use an extra 1/2 egg yolk.

Ingredients
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar (granulated)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 pound whole dates (pitted)
1/2 pound walnut halves
4 eggs, separated

Mix flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder and sift over dates and nuts. Beat egg yolks and mix with other mixture. It will not cover all ingredients. Beat the 4 egg whites until peaks hold then fold into the above mixture.

Line the bottom of a loaf pan with waxed paper which is greased slightly and pour mixture in pan. It is very stiff and not very moist but there is no other liquid. Bake in a 300-degree oven for 50 to 60 minutes. Cool in pan 5 or 10 minutes and then take out of pan. Remove waxed paper and cool. Can be stored in a plastic bag in the cupboard or frozen.
