1 1/2 cups
dates, pitted and chopped
2 1/4 cups
4 1/2 cups
This recipe is very much like my grandmother's, but you should add to the recipe that you have to add the water that the dates are soaking in. Her recipe had you adding the water a little at a time when you added the flour. She also baked the bread in clean vegetable cans she saved to make mini loaves for gift giving. I use mini loaf pans instead. I also pair up the bread with a small container of home-made honey butter to make a great sweet treat gift! My friends and family love it! If you want, you can also include a small chees spread knife.
I made half of the recipe and i will say the bread was the worst tasting stuff i have ever eaten. The inside was all doughy.
This is wonderful!! Far better then any recipe Betty C. ever gave us - it takes a bit longer to cook then it says - I baked it at 350 along with a banana bread I was making and it still took a little over an hour. You might also add to the instructions add the date mixture (water/soda/date) instead of just adding dates -my 10yo daughter was helping me make it and she couldnt figure out how to get the dates out of the water w/o getting water into the batter until I told her to dump the whole thing in =) Thanks Peggy!!!!
A truly delicious bread (cake!) recipe. Moist, light, and flavorful! I took reviewer advice and baked at 350. At an hour the inside was still doughy, so I covered it with tinfoil to prevent anymore outside darkening, and it was done about 15 minutes later. An added cupful of raisins (or chocolate chips) goes wonderfully in the batter as well!
Try adding dark brown sugar instead of white, WOW! what a flavor difference I'd give it 6 stars if I could.
The description is right -- you DO have to hide this to make it last!! I substituted 1-1/2 cups whole wheat flour for 1-1/2 cups of the all-purpose flour and it was still great! Low in fat, too! EXCELLENT!
this is a very tasty dark brown bread. soak the dates in the boiling/soda water, makes them so moist!! very good Linda
This is a nice quick and moist date bread recipe. It was easy to put together and baking time was a little longer then the recipe called for.
It is very good as a breakfast bread spread with cream cheese.
Will definitely keep this to make again!
