Date Nut Bread
(John Andrus)

1 large egg, beaten
1 cup milk
1/4 cup butter, melted
2 cups white flour, sifted
1 tablespoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup white granulated sugar
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
1/4 cup chopped dates

In a large mixing bowl, combine the egg, milk, and melted butter.  Mix in the flour, baking soda, salt, and sugar until flour is moistened, but not totally smooth.  Fold in nuts and dates.  Pour into a greased 9 x 5 bread loaf pan and bake in a 350 degree oven for 1 hour, or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Cool bread in pan for 10 minutes and then turn out on a wire rack to cool.
