Date Bread image

Pit 1 cup dates, cut in halves, add 2 tablespoonfuls sugar and large tablespoonful butter substitute and work into bread dough. Put in pan, let rise and bake in a slow oven. It may be served hot or cold and makes excellent sandwiches with a nut or fig filling.



For 2 slices of well toasted bread take 1/2 pt. milk, 2 teaspoons flour, 2 teaspoons butter. Put the butter and flour in a saucepan and stir gently until the butter melts, let bubble together for a few minutes, then add milk gradually (having been heated) so as to have the sauce perfectly free from lumps. Dip the hot toast into boiling salted milk and place in a covered dish and pour the sauce, salted, over and between the slices.


TOAST image

To make toast successfully one should endeavor to convert as much as possible of the starch into dextrine. To do this cut the bread into slices 1/3 inch thick and place on a toaster some distance from the fire, so that the heat may penetrate to the center of the slice before the outside has begun to change color.
