  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
  2. Cook chopped dates and water over low heat until soft. Set aside.
  3. Cream together sugar and shortening. Add eggs and beat well. Stir in flour, salt, baking soda, cocoa and vanilla and mix well. Stir in date mixture.
  4. Pour in 9 x 11 inch pan and top with chocolate chips and chopped nuts. Bake until toothpick comes out clean. (10 - 15 minutes)



I drained the water after the dates boiled, so the center was not raw. Also, substituted mini chips and pecans for the semisweet chocolate chips & walnuts. Very tasty!

Not sure if the recipe was written down correctly, but I did exactly what recipe stated, proper oven temp, but after 30 min, centre of the pan was still raw, and the toothpick never did come out...

This recipe is delicious. I had to adjust the flour I used 2 1\2 cups otherwise the batter is too runny.
