       8    Empty beer cans                     1 c  Maple syrup
       2 tb Soda                                1 tb Vanilla
       1 c  Dates                               2    Eggs
       2 c  Beer                                4 c  Whole wheat pastry flour
       3 tb Butter                              1 c  Pecans
  
   Remove tops from beer cans with can opener; lightly oil insides.  Sprinkle
   soda on dates.  Heat beer to boiling and pour over date/soda mixture; set
   aside to cool.  Cream together butter, maple syrup, vanilla, and eggs. Stir
   in flour.  Add nuts and cooled date mixture.  Spoon batter into cans,
   filling only 1/2 full.  Bake with cans standing up on cookie sheet, at 350
   degrees for 15-30 minutes; look for tops to split and test for doneness. Do
   not cut bread for 1 day; bread may break up, if it is sliced while still
   warm.
