Recipe by Joan Donahue
"My mother used to make this recipe in a long loaf pan which I don't believe they make any more. Fortunately, I have her pan and whenever I make this it sure brings back such happy memories."

NOT WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR
My mother gave me this recipe years ago, my whole family just loves it! Be sure to serve with cream cheese.
Just want you to know..i have this exact same recipe..my mother-in-law gave it to me...she always made it at Christmas...and now i do...it is a very good date/nut loaf....it isnt supposed to be too sweet...i also have the long loaf pan that they dont make anymore!! it was my mother-in-laws....this is a great recipe for date/nut bread...great with cream cheese on warm slices....
really good. I did add one mashed banana (just because it needed to be used up) and a generous sprinkle of ground ginger. I baked in muffin tins (large) for approx. 35 minutes at 350. Will make again. Next time I may add two sprinkles of ginger.
I only needed to bake for 45mins. Thankfully my sense of smell led me to check it earlier or else it would've burnt & been no good. Toothpick came out clean, turned out wonderful & delicious! I used fresh strong brewed coffee instead of the boiled water. I would definitely make again.
Tastes just like my Nana's bread. She used to use coffee cans to bake with, which worked really well, giving the bread a nice all-around crust. I haven't tried using them yet, but you can bet I will!
This is a great recipe - wonderful taste and wonderful texture! I made it to serve to our playgroup when both parents and tots came over this fall for an afternoon of apple picking, and I just realized I forgot to review it! I was looking for a quick-bread that would be a little different than the run of the mill zucchini or pumpkin or banana - and this got rave reviews from everyone! (I did omit the walnuts because I wasn't sure about the tots being able to chew them well and because of allergy concerns). I just used a standard loaf pan, but have kept an eye out for the longer-style pan in second hand shops that Joan wrote about in the recipe's intro. I'm so glad to have a new way of including dates in our snack-times. Thanks very much!
