Preheat the oven to three hundred and fifty degrees. Grease a loaf pan and line with parchment paper.
In a bowl, add one cup of boiling water, eight ounces of dates and two tablespoons of butter. Set aside.
In a mixing bowl, with an electric hand mixer, beat one egg, three quarter cups of white sugar and one-quarter of a cup of brown sugar. Mix until smooth.
Add two and one-half cups of Bisquick and continue mixing until well incorporated.
Stir in one-half cup of walnuts.
Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for forty-five minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
To prepare the frosting, place two blocks of cream cheese, one cup of icing sugar, and one-half cup of maple syrup in a large mixing bowl. Whip until smooth using an electric hand mixer. Spread over the date nut bread, or frost slices individually as desired.
