Date Nut Cake
1 Box Yellow Cake Mix (2 layer kind)
1 Cup Water
Add to above and mix well
1 Can Solo Date Filling (12-1/2 oz can)
1 Cup Chopped Nuts (i.e. walnuts, pecans, almonds)
Pour into prepared pan(s) and bake at 350-degrees for 35-40 minutes (recipe directions). However, I always bake at 325-degrees until toothpick inserted in
center comes out clean (makes for a moister cake).
English Walnut Date Cake
2 pounds dates, pitted and chopped
2 pounds English walnuts, coarsely chopped
1 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
4 egg yolks
4 egg whites
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10 inch tube pan.
In a large bowl, combine dates, walnuts, sugar, baking powder and flour. Stir in egg yolks. In a large glass or metal mixing bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold the whites into the fruit/nut mixture until no streaks remain. Spoon into prepared pan.
Bake in the preheated oven for 90 minutes. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely.
