This receipe is a follow up of the article Baking In A Can. It can be found here. http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/1208406.aspx I suggest you read it before you begin your task of making this recipe. Also Recipe 1 Honey Bun Cake can be found here. http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/1209164.aspx Today I will be posting two baking in a can recipes instead of one. I was sick yesterday and did not post one and I stated in the original discussion that I would post one a day. So Look for Recipe 3 in a few minutes. This is a wonderful flavorful bread with a delecate flavor of nuts and dates. I hope you enjoy it. This is a great way to recycle those cans that have veggies and fruit in. Wonderful for the enviroment and for your family. Finally cooking in something that you can feel good about and does not cost money. Date Nut Bread in a Can 1/2 cup flour 2 TBSP sugar 2 TBSP finely chopped pecans 2 TBSP chopped dates 1 TBSP brown sugar 1 tsp baking powder Place ingredients into a bowl. Blend with a whisk. Then place mixture into a ziplock sandwich bag. Place bag into a 14-16 oz. can. Then decorate can with a label that can be removed. Kids love to decorate them. Don’t forget to attach recipe with these instructions: DATE NUT BREAD TO BAKE IN A CAN 1.Remove mix from can. Empty bag of mix into bowl. 2. Add 1 TBSP water, 1 TBSP oil and 1 egg. Mix well. 3. Remove any labels or decorations from can. Grease can by rolling some oil around inside of can. Drain any excess oil. DO NOT spray can with cooking spray. 4. Spoon batter into can. Bake at 350 for 32-35 minutes. Bread is done when a broom straw or bamboo skewer placed in the middle of bread comes out clean. ( Years ago they often used broom straws to check for doneness in baking) 5. When bread is done let it cool 15 minutes in the can. Run a plain table knife around edge of bread to loosen it from the can. shake can to allow the bread to slide out.

I notice that this one takes longer to bake than the others so far. I have some dates, and some nuts, so I suppose I could get busy and bake some. If we have a coolish day come up, I might do it. I actually am supposed to be making a date nut roll. Maybe we can have both.

I'm not crazy about dates. i've just never developed a taste for them. It is sad, because I know that they are good for me. To me, they taste too much like a raisin, which I absolutely detest. (That's a long story, that I might share with everyone some time.)

This one sounds the best to me so far- I am printing them all off and will give them a try when it gets cooler out- I hate baking or even starting the oven in the summer- the house is already hot! Thanks for another great recipe!
