No funny stories on this one. It was pretty straight forward. The only strange thing was Marjorie had me mix the nuts, dates and baking soda in a bowl. Then to that I added shortening and boiling water. This mixture sat before it was added it to the eggs, sugar and flour. I have never read or made anything this way. It was interesting. The result looks kind of like a fruit cake without the fruit. It smells fantastic. Come on in, and give this recipe a try!
