Date Nut Cake

The search engine registry shows that someone searched for this:

Baker's Bakery-Like Date Nut Cake 

3/4 Cup milk 
1/2 Cup dates 
1/3 Cup Shortening 
1/3 Cup Brown Sugar 
2/3 Cup White Sugar 
1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
2 large eggs 
1 3/4 Cup All Purpose Flour 
1 teaspoon baking powder 
1/4 teaspoon baking soda 
1/2 Cup chopped walnuts 
1/2 teaspoon salt 

Preheat your oven to 350. Prepare your pan(s) by rubbing them with shortening, 
then dusting with flour, or spray with that flour/grease-in-a-can. This recipe 
makes a single 8X8 inch pan, or you could do two loaf pans and stack them as 
layers. Or double the recipe and make two full size layers. 

Warm the milk and dates in a pan, or microwave until warm. Let sit for at least 
10 minutes. Break up the dates into the milk as much as you can. (There are no 
visible dates in the Baker's Bakery cake. You could use a blender or a food 
processor. I used a fork to break up the dates). 

In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. 
Or put the ingredients in the bowl and stir them with your whisk. The idea is to 
make sure the leavening is evenly distributed. 

Cream the shortening in your mixer for a minute or so. Add the sugar and continue 
creaming for 2 more minutes. Add the vanilla and one egg. Mix until combined. 
Scrape the bowl. Add the next egg. Mix until completely combined. 

Add 1/3 of the flour mixture. Mix on low until combined (15 seconds?). Scrape the bowl. 
Add 1/2 of the milk/date mixture. Mix on low until combined. Scrape the bowl. 
Add another third of the flour. Mix on low until combined. Add the last of the milk/date 
mixture. Mix on low until combined. Add the last of the flour. Mix on low until combined. 
Pull the bowl from the mixer. Mix in the walnuts, making sure that everything is evenly 

Divide into the pans (easy division if you're only doing one pan) and spread the batter 
smooth. Place in the center of the oven and back for 45-50 minutes for a single layer, 
35-40 if you are doing two loaf pans. 

Take the cake out of the oven and let sit for 15 minutes, then turn out of the pan 
onto a cake rack and let cool completely. Frost with White Cake Frosting. To match the 
Baker's Bakery experience, do two layers with frosting between the layers and sprinkle 
chopped walnuts on the sides of the cake.

My name is Fay and I have been searching for a recipe for beef turnovers 
that my family used to make.  I know most of the ingredients but not the proportions. 
I would love to have this recipe and if you can find it I would be very greatful. 
My family found the recipe in a magazine we recieved in Canada, so it could have 
been chatalane, better homes and gardens, redbook, good housekeeping or something 
of that nature.

The  dough is made out of

Crushed french onion crackers
several Tablespoons of water
cream cheese
parmsan cheese?

The beef inside is ground beef browned with tomatoe sause, chopped mushrooms, 
chopped spinach (canned or frozen) basel seasoning and salt and pepper

roll out dough and cut into circles place beef mixture on rounds of dough and 
fold over and pinch edges, brush with beaten egg and bake in the oven.

Without the correct ingredients I just cannot seem to get them to taste like I remember

Thanks for you help


Hello Fay,

Sorry, I had no success at all in locating a beef turnover recipe with those ingredients.
