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......
