Date nut cake

Yield: 12 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 pounds Dates; cut up
6 cups Whole pecans
1 pounds Whole candied cherries
1 pounds Candied pineapple; cut up
1 cup Sugar
1 cup (heaping) flour
1 teaspoon Salt
4 Eggs; separated, beaten
2 teaspoons Vanilla

Put fruit & nuts in large bowl. (Save out a few whole cherries & pineapple to put on top of cake.) Sift in flour, salt & sugar. Mix well. Stir in beaten egg whites, then egg yolks. Add vanilla. Mix well. Pour into greased angel food cake pan that has had bottom lined with brown (sack) paper. Bake 1-½ hours at 300. Leave in oven until cool. (I always place about another ½ cup whole pecans on top of batter before putting in oven.) KITTY ROBINS
