chopped pitted dates
strong brewed coffee
1 1/2 cups
I really loved this recipe. The combination of dates and coffee is great. However, I did make a couple of changes. I added 1/2 cup more dates and I tented the bread with aluminum foil half way through baking.
As Pennypilaf pointed out in her 12/2/2004 comment, I am one of those people who didn't like this bread. It turned out moist and everything; I just didn't like the taste. And this was frustrating because I really love good coffee and I also love dates. Sorry, Karen.
This wonderful bread is dark and moist (almost cake-like) and is so easy to make. I am giving it out as Christmas presents and everyone who has received it asks for the recipe. Thanks so much for posting it.
What a terrific recipe! I have made it quite a few times since I saw it on All Recipes a few months ago. It is dark and moist which is what I have been looking for. Most date & nut breads I've tried are light in color and not nearly as moist as this one. I tried baking it in the little mini pans and it comes out perfect. It makes about 2 or 3 mini loaves (fill about 2/3 full so they don't drip over) and bake at he same degrees between 45 to 60 min. Great for Holiday gifts. I also added a few extra dates and chopped the nuts coarse by hand to give the bread a nice crunchy texture. Tenting with some foil half way through is a suggestion from another reviewer that is helpful since the bread will get dark fairly soon in the cooking process. A MUST TRY recipe for all you date nut bread lovers out there! THANK YOU Karen for submitting this WONDERFUL recipe!!
I baked this bread as muffins--12 of them, and they are delicious!!! Baked the muffins at 350 for about 30 minutes.
I used only 3 Tbs of sugar but it turned out just as sweet as I wanted it to be. I may use only 2 Tbs of sugar next time.
For coffe, I brewed espresso and diluted it with hot water. I really love the taste. Thanks for the great recipe. This is the keeper!
Delicious. Will definately make this again.
I thought this recipe was very good. I added 1/4 tsp cinnamon and used 1 cup of brown suger instead of white sugar. I also tossed in some currants. I made muffins instead of a loaf of bread. This made 17 muffins baked at 350 degrees for about 17 minutes. Very moist and yummy.
