Date Bread

Date Bread is one of my favourite breads.  Toasted with butter it's delicious.  Matched with salty meats, or pickles in a sandwich, the  sweetness of the dates elevates any sandwich to a delightful experience!

Date Bread

  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 90g butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1 1/3 cups plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2/3 cup coarsely chopped pitted dates
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts

In a mixer bowl, cream together sugar and butter until light.

Add egg and vanilla, beating until combined.  Stir together flour, salt, soda and spices.  Add flour mixture to creamed mixture with the milk, stirring until blended.  Stir in dates and walnuts.

Pour the batter into two greased and floured bread tins,  Bake at 180 degrees celsius until done (usually around 45-50mins).  Cool slightly and remove from tins,  Cool on wire wrack.  Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and chill overnight before slicing.

Cocinar, comer y ser feliz!
