This is very good. I have made it at Christmas time since 1950!
1-1/2 cups flour
1-1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 pound pitted dates, cut in fourths
2 bottles (10 ounces each) maraschino cherries and juice
1 pound pecan nuts (or Brazil nuts), leave whole
1 pound English walnuts, leave whole
Sift flour, sugar and baking powder. Mix with remaining ingredients. Pour into two lightly buttered 9x5-inch bread pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Watch closely the last 15 minutes of baking and don't overbake.
Freeze and slice.
Optional: Can use one angel food cake pan and use brown or wax paper to line pan before filling.
