CHOCOLATE KISSES-DATE CAKE

What a fun cake. This tube cake is made with dates and kisses!

1 cup boiling water

1 cup dates, cut-up
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
4 eggs, beaten
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
40 chocolate candy kisses
1 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly grease a 10-inch tube pan; set aside.

Combine the boiling water, dates, and baking soda together; set aside and allow to cool.

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, sugar, and vanilla. Add the eggs and blend into the mixture. Sift flour and salt together; add alternately to the batter with the date mixture. Pour half the batter into the prepared tube pan. Sprinkle half of the nuts and half of the candy kisses. Add remaining batter and top with remaining nuts and kisses. Bake for 1 hour at 325 degrees. Cool 15 minutes before removing from pan.
