      I don't know why this is called a fruit loaf, as the date IS the fruit, but anyway, this was great and easy to prepare. I used 1 c. nuts instead of the 1/2 c. The dates and nuts are always a great combination and we loved it with the lemon and cinnamon!

      I had one of those "clear out cupboard" days. Found a pack of dried dates from previous Christmas and a lonely can of Coca cola, also from Christmas past. Had all the other ingredients. Made it. Very easy to follow, and make. Wrapped it in foil and left it til the next day as suggested in recipe. What a fantastic loaf. And from left overs that I was going to throw out!! Will make this again, and very soon. I never used the lemon zest, I don't like it so don't add it to any recipe.

      The 5 stars are with my changes. I have been very uncertain as to how to review this recipe because in making it diabetic friendly I changed it a lot. The date amount was dropped to between 2 and 3 ozs and they were not boiled but chopped and added. The cola became Diet Cherry Vanilla Coke and it was used cold. The brown sugar became 1/3 cup of Splenda.The extracts were 1/2 tsp each of vanilla and cherry and I skipped the nuts. Even with these changes it's wonderful in flavor and light and very tender inside. I will use an 8x4" pan next time I make this as it didn't get very high in the 9x5 I used. I find it plenty sweet enough with the drastic cut in the dates and sugar. I don't even want to imagine how sweet it would be in the original form. This is easy to put together and bakes up a to a very nice color. My DH came following his nose for the second time today asking what was baking.
