3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups combination of chopped nuts (walnuts, pecans, almonds, Brazil, etc.)
1 pound dates, diced
1 cup halved maraschino cherries
1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt until well mixed. Add nuts, dates and cherries and stir until fruit and nuts are well coated. Beat eggs with vanilla until foamy. Fold into the nut mixture and mix well.
Pour into a greased, wax-lined loaf pan. Bake for about 1 hour and 45 minutes. Check after an hour with a toothpick. Depending on the pan and thickness of the mix it may take a little more or a little less time. Cool 10 minutes before serving.
