1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup fat-free milk
2 tablespoons bourbon
2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl; stir with a whisk. Combine milk, bourbon, oil and vanilla in a bowl. Add to flour mixture, stirring just until moist. Stir in dates and nuts. Spoon batter into an 8-inch baking pan coated with cooking spray.

Sprinkle brown sugar over batter. Pour boiling water over batter (do not stir). Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until the cake springs back when touched lightly in the center (cake will not test clean when a wooden pick
