Here's another for the crock pot.

                        WHOLE GRAIN DATE BREAD

          1 cup boiling water
          1 cup chopped pitted dates
          3 eggs
          1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
        1/2 cup all purpose flour
        1/2 cup whole wheat flour
        1/4 cup wheat germ (optional--replace with flour)
          1 tsp. baking powder
        1/2 tsp. baking soda
          2 cups all bran cereal flakes
          1 cup coarsely chopped pecans (or any nut)

  Pour boiling water over dates; cool.  Beat eggs until light; add brown
  sugar and beat until thick.  Stir in dates.  Combine dry ingredients
  and add to egg mixture.  Beat until just moistened and blended.  Add
  cereal and nuts.  Pour into a well greased 1 pound coffee can; cover
  top with 4 layers of folded paper towels.  Put a trivet or canning jar
  lid in the bottom of crockery pot and place bread can on it.  Place
  crock pot lid on loosely, resting against two toothpicks, etc., to 
  allow steam to escape.  Cook on high (300f) for 3 hours or until a 
  toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
