Date Cake from Alberta Burrill

As I do not have a good picture of Alberta, I am posting her grandchildren Richard, Diane and Frederick II

1 cup hot water
1 teaspoon soda

Pour over:

1 cup of chopped dates


Cream together:

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup shortening
1 egg


the date mixture
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix lightly and bake at 350 degrees F till a toothpick comes out clean.

This keeps well and is moist.

There is no pan size given and no time for baking.
