1 cup soft salted butter

1 cup sugar brown

cream well,

add 2 eggs  not cold from the fridge

add 2 cups all purpose flour with 1/2 teaspoon BP powder, stir all by hand, add 1 or maybe 2 more eggs depending on what size you use,  don't let mixture be to dry,  soft plop, if too soft dates will sink. ;-((((

add 2 tablespoons of very very strong coffee, instant will do, but strong,

 add  chopped dates  as many as you want to put in, I always add lots, stir all by hand,

 put into lined and buttered large loaf pan,,,,, bake at least 1 1/4 hours at 300, maybe longer test before removing from oven......
