"This is my mother's recipe, a bread she always made at Thanksgiving and Christmas to be used for tea sandwiches with a cream cheese filling. But it may also be eaten on its own like a cake. Because it is so delicious yet simple to put together, it makes a great food gift or potluck contribution. Substitute raisins for dates, if you wish."

I always enjoy trying new tea bread recipes since I drink a lot of fresh brewed tea from leaves in the winter. Since there were no reviews I decided to halve the recipe to try it out. DELICIOU...

Wow, what a great little baked good to take along during the hollidays. Very good as is, however I did add about a teaspoon of cinnamon to the wet mixture.
