Best Nut loaf (Revised)

I started cooking with a cook book my mother had received from her mother, a better homes and gardens cook book. There is no date on it but by the pictures I would say pre- 1950's. I remember her making this bread on special occasions.

I revamped it and pulled the sugar out. It is in baking as I fill this out, so a picture will be added soon.

Unhealthy version as it was written is under the directions.
