Ingredients:

Dough:
  • 6 cups - All Purpose Flour, 6 to 6 1/2 cups
  • 1/3 cups - Sugar
  • 2 packages - Fleischmann's Active Dry Yeast
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons - Salt
  • 1 cups - Milk
  • 1/2 cups - Water
  • 1/2 cups - Margarine
  • 2 - Eggs, room temperature
  • Filling:
  • 3 tablespoons - Margarine, melted
  • 1/4 cups - Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons - Ground Cinnamon
  • 8 ounces - Dromedary Dates, chopped
  • 1 - Egg white, lightly beaten
  • Crumb Topping
  • 1/2 cups - All Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 cups - Light Brown Sugar, packed
  • 1 teaspoons - Ground Cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons - Margarine, cold
  • Directions:

    Combine 2 cups flour, sugar, salt and undissolved yeast.

    Heat milk, water and margarine to 120° to 130°F. Margarine does not need to melt. Add to dry ingredients and beat at medium speed of electric mixer 2 minutes. Add eggs and 1/2 cup flour; beat at high speed 2 minutes. Stir in enough additional flour to make a stiff dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes. Place in greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until double in size, about 30 to 45 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare Crumb Topping.

    Punch dough down; divide in half. Roll each half to 16 x 7-inches. Brush each with melted margarine to within 1-inch of edge. Combine sugar with cinnamon and sprinkle onto each rectangle; top with chopped dates. Roll each tightly from short end as for jelly roll and pinch seams and ends to seal. Place in greased 9x5x2-inch loaf pans. Cover; let rise in warm place until double in size, about 30 to 45 minutes.

    Brush loaves with egg white and sprinkle with Crumb Topping. Bake at 375° for 45 minutes or until done. Remove from pans and cool on wire racks.

    CRUMB TOPPING:
    Combine flour, brown sugar and cinnamon. Cut in the cold margarine.
