      German Beer Coffee Cake
      3 cups flour
      2 teaspoons baking soda
      1/2 teaspoon each allspice and cloves
      2 cups chopped dates
      1 cup chopped walnuts
      1 cup margarine or butter
      2 cups packed brown sugar
      2 eggs
      2 cups beer
      Confectioner’s Sugar
      Rum or Honey Butter Spread (optional, recipes following)
      Mix dry ingredients; set aside. Combine dates and nuts in a small bowl and toss with a small amount of the flour mixture to coat; set aside. In large bowl cream butter/margarine and brown sugar.

      Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each. Add flour mixture alternately with beer, blending after each addition. Stir in dates and nuts.

      Pour into well-greased and floured bundt or tube pan. Bake in a pre-heated 350-degree oven 1 hour and 15 minutes or until pick inserted in middle comes out clean. Cool in pan on rack 10 minutes; turn onto rack to cool completely.

      Wrap in foil and allow to sit for 24 hours before serving. (This really does intensify flavor of spices-YUMMY). Sprinkle with confectioner’s sugar just before serving.

      Rum Butter:
      Whip 1/2 cup softened butter or margarine with 2 tablespoons rum until light and fluffy. Or, whip 4 tablespoons honey with butter.
