The bread is flavorful, but quite dry. Probably because it only contains 2 tablespoons of shortening. It was better the second day after baking, but not something I would like to try again. With the cream cheese spread, I would say 4 stars, without, 3. Proof again that we're all different. Thank you for an interesting experience. I think I'll go with a plain date nut bread from now on.
If Sunshine says it's gonna' be good-take it to the bank, it's gonna' be GOOD. I made a quadruple batch and got 4ea 8" and 1ea 9" loaves; 1 for Christmas brunch and 4 to give as superior gifts along with a carton of the cream cheese spread for every loaf. I sampled the brunch loaf and sampled again and then had to square off my slanted cut and, you know... This is quite possibly the finest thing ever done with a pkg. of dates. 27* Fabulous. need a nap...
Where do I send my money???!!! This is the Best Margarita Bread I have ever had!(Actually the only Margarita bread I've ever had but I can't imagine anything better!) I did my best to mess up the recipe and it still came out wonderful- Including letting the mixer go and go with out turning it off and adding the sugar into the tequila instead of beating it with the shortening. Even after all my mistakes it still came out fabulous! The flavor is incredible-and the spread takes it over the top! Thank you for sharing San Marcos Sun!
