  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each. Dissolve the baking soda in the hot water, add it to the egg mixture. Stir in the flour and cinnamon until well blended. Finally, stir in the dates and walnuts so they are evenly distributed.
