I just got this out of the oven and could not wait to review. Same old story, had some dates to use up. Loved store bought date nut bread spread with cream cheese as a kid, it was really dense and heavy. Not sure if this will turn out the same but figured I'd try to recreate what I loved as a kid but can't seem to buy anymore. Like one reviewer mentioned, I used a mix of white and whole wheat flour. To be on the safer side because I am usually a disaster at baking, I used only 1/2 cup whole wheat flour. True to my usual form, I afterward realized it was WW pastry flour which I'm sure will make it less dense then I was hoping for. Also, I forgot to mix the egg in so I had to mix that in last after everything was mixed (baking disaster anyone?) Still, when I cut a slice off while it was still warm, the flavor was perfect and the texture was like that of a moist zucchini bread. As one reviewer recommended, I wrapped the rest in wax paper and foil and refrigerated to see if it gets more firm and moist. Either way, I will be repeating this recipe with the correct flour proportions and hopefully not forgetting the egg. Even with my baking mess ups, I couldn't make this taste bad! That makes it a winner in my book.
