8 ounces dates -- finely chopped
1 3/4 cups unbleached flour -- sifted
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 large egg -- well beaten
1 cup walnuts -- chopped
3/4 cup water -- boiling
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar -- granulated
4 ounces cheddar -- shredded
2 tablespoons butter

Preparation / Directions:

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Place the dates and butter in a small bowl and pour the boiling water over them. Let stand for 5 minutes. Stir the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Add the date mixture, egg, cheddar and nuts. Mix until just blended and spoon the mixture into a well greased 9 X 5-inch loaf pan. Let stand for 20 minutes. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes in the preheated oven or until a wooden pick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean. Turn out onto a rack and cool before slicing. NOTE: The flavor improves is the bread stands overnight before serving.
