Date Bread With Honey Recipe

John, our household date specialist, also developed a good bread recipe that uses the fruit.

In two cups of water heat three cups of pitted and cut up dates. To this add two-thirds of a cup of honey, one-third cup of oil (John likes his to be taken from sunflower seeds, but any good, fairly light-flavored vegetable oil is fine) and two eggs. Beat the mixture well — we favor a wooden spoon.

Sift together:

3 cups whole-wheat flour (If you get a lot of bran when you sift, add it back to the sifted flour.)
1 cup soybean flour (If you don't care for the taste, use less and add more whole-wheat flour and dry milk.)
1/2 cup nonfat dry milk (optional, it's been left out a few times)
2 tsp. soda
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder (double acting)
2/3 cup wheat germ (or chopped nuts or a combination of both)

Mix the dry ingredients, then add them to the wet and stir well.
