    Add 1 cup chopped dates and 3/4 cup chopped walnuts to 3/4 cup boiling h2o with 1 1/2 t baking soda.

    Melt 1/4 cup shortening.

    Beat 2 eggs with 1/2 t vanilla and 1 cup sugar.

    Sift 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour with 1/2 t salt.

    When the water mixture is cool, add the egg mixture, add the melted shortening, then fold in the flour. Bake in a floured, greased pan at 350 till done.
