How to make it

  • Cook the cut up asparagus, covered, in the boiling water for about 10 minutes or until tender. Cool slightly. Transfer asparagus and cooking liquid to a blender; cover and blend until pureed. (there should be 2 cups, add water to make to cups if necessary) Set aside.
  • In large mixing bowl, beat butter with mixer on medium to high speed for 20 seconds or until softened. Add brown sugar and beat until combined. Beat in eggs.
  • In another bowl, stir together flour, powder, soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Add to creamed mixture alternately with asparagus puree, beating until combined after each addition. With a wooden spoon, stir in nuts, dates and raisins.
  • Pour into 2 greased and floured 8 or 9 inch round baking pans.
  • bake in 350 degree oven for 35-45 minutes (depending on the size of the pans)...or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • cool on wire racks for 10 minutes and then remove from pans.
  • Cool thoroughly on racks.
  • Layer with cream cheese frosting.
