    I too remember the Dromedary date and nut roll. It was a true treat for us kids. Obviously I am no longer a kid since I can remember this wonderful, delicious product.

    I have searched for this recipe, and while I have come up with a few that are similar, the taste just isn't the same. Will watch this thread and hope someone comes up with just the perfect ingredients.

    I don't know if you're still looking for this recipe, since your request was posted 2 years ago. I have an original Nabisco Dromedary recipe pamphlet that my mother used years ago as I was growing up to make this bread each year for the holidays. I have continued that tradition by making several loaves each Christmas season to share with my siblings. I don't know anything about the "canned" part of your request, but here is the original recipe as presented in the pamphlet by Dromedary....ENJOY!!!

    OLD-FASHIONED DATE AND NUT BREAD#2
    Makes 1 loaf

    1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    3/4 cup sugar
    1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    3/4 cup water
    1/3 cup Blue Bonnet margarine (that's how it's listed in the original recipe)
    1 (8-ounce) package Dromedary Chopped Dates or Dromedary Pitted Dates, snipped
    3/4 cup Planters Walnuts, chopped
    2 eggs, slightly beaten
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

    In small bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking soda and salt; set aside.

    In small saucepan, over medium-high heat, bring water and Blue Bonnet Margarine to a boil; remove from heat. Stir in Dromedary Dates; let stand 15 minutes. In large bowl, stir together date mixture, Planters Walnuts, eggs and vanilla. Stir in flour mixture just until blended. Pour into a greased and floured 9 x 5 x 3-inch loaf pan.

    Bake at 350 for 50 to 55 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan; cool completely on wire rack.

    Starting in the 60's my mom made these using Campbell's soup cans. More times than not she used half raisins and half dates.
    Boil 2/3 c water. In a bowl 1/2 stick butter, 1/2 lb dates and 2/3 c sugar. Mix well. Add a slightly beaten egg and 1 cup walnuts. Sift 1 3/4 c flour with 1/4 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp baking soda. Add to the date mixture. Mix well. Grease 5 small cans, or 2 large cans. Fill the cans 2/3 full and press down with a spoon. Place the cans on a cookie sheet and then place another greased cookie sheet over the top of the cans. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 45 min. Let stand for about 10 min. before removing the bread from the cans. Eating warm is best!

    Hi, if you are still looking for a date bread recipe baked in tin cans, here is my mothers recipe. I make it often, using 4 tin cans, the size veggies come in, 15 oz I think. It is great for gifts or traveling, serve as is or with cream cheese or butter. I think this recipe was popular during the war, only 1 tbsp butter.

    Prepare 4 tin cans by greasing and lightly flouring.
    Combine 1 tbsp butter
    2 1/2 to 3 cups mixture of dates, raisens, nuts etc.
    1 tsp soda
    Over this pour 1 cup boiling water. Stir and let cool
    Cake - Beat 2 large eggs until light
    Slowly add 1 cup sugar and 1 tsp lemon or orange
    extract.
    Stir together 2 cups flour
    2 tsp baking powder
    1 tsp salt
    Add the dry ingredients to egg mixture, stir in the nut/date
    mixture
    Pour into the 4 tin cans, bake at 325 for 55 min
    I let them cool for a few minutes and remove from tins and finish cooling on rack.

    I always make my breads (pumpkin, banana, date nut, whatever) in vegetable cans. I started baking in cans years ago when money was short and we did not have any means to get regular baking pans. My family thinks it is cool to have "round" little loafs of pumpkin bread.
