    Ingredients:

    Serves: 10

    Yield:

    loaf

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Lightly coat an 81/2 x 4 1/2 x 2 1/2 loaf pan with canola oil spray. Set aside.
    2. 2
      In one bowl, combine the banana, dates, cinnamon, ginger, allspice, and maple syrup. In another bowl, combine the two flours, baking powder and salt. Set both bowls aside.
    3. 3
      In a large bowl, use a wooden spoon to cream the butter and sugar until fluffy.
    4. 4
      Mix in the eggs. The mixture may look curdled. Stir in the dry ingredients. Blend in the banana mixture, creating a sticky, thick batter. Spoon the batter into the prepared pan, smoothing it evenly.
    5. 5
      Bake 35 minutes, or until the top is well-browned and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
    6. 6
      Let the cake rest 2 minutes in the pan, then turn out and cool it completely on a rack. If possible, wrap it in foil and set it aside for 24 hours before serving, to allow the flavors to mellow.
    7. 7
      If desired, slices of cake can be warmed just before serving by wrapping them in wax paper and heating in a microwave at low power for a few seconds.
    8. 8
      Makes 10 one-inch slices.

      This loaf is amazing! i started making it a couple years ago and my friends still ask for it every fall/winter. works great with any dried fruit - figs, etc could also be used. i add walnuts when i have them. consistency is on the drier side, but i like it that way, warmed up, with peanut butter and tea. perfect!
