FRENCH FRUIT CAKE

2 lbs. dates   2 lbs. English walnuts
1 pt. bottle maraschino cherries 1 c. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder 1 c. flour
2 eggs 2 tb. cherry juice
1 pinch salt 1 tsp. vanilla
 

Chop dates and English walnuts rather coarsely.  Beat eggs, add sugar, cherry juice, vanilla, then add flour sifted with baking powder and salt.  Add dates and nuts, and the whole cherries.  Bake in a well oiled cake pan for one hour in a moderate oven, lowering the temperature for the last 10 or 12 minutes.  This cake does not brown.  It is better if it is not baked in a pyrex dish.
