The only dough most people know of that gets boiled is bagel dough. Except if you knew my Nana. She was a great cook and a great baker and cooked in service in Boston when she emigrated from Ireland. She made the best date nut bread on the planet and the secret is the boiling of ingredients. You boil the dates and raisins and brown sugar for ten minutes and then mix the liquid with the dry ingredients. The result is somewhere between molasses and cement consistency, but the batter transforms itself via a 350 degree oven into a fabulous bread that should be sliced thin and served with your choice of butter or cream cheese! Yum! This recipe makes more than one loaf pan. I actually get one loaf pan and 2 mini loaves ( good for stocking stuffers) out of one batch. And err on the side of caution to make sure it is cooked all the way through! Enjoy!
