    Chef #880889's Note:

    This is a dark, moist date nut bread like Thomas's or Dromedary --with the deep flavor or molasses! Healthy too--low fat and increased fiber. Don't use the packaged chopped dates as they contain added sugar. You can also make the loaf with white flour only. Enjoy!

      This is absolutely the best date bread I have ever eaten. I ate it as a young adult about 50 yrs ago out of a can from Dromedary. You opened both ends of the can and pushed it out and sliced it. We served it with softened cream cheese between two sliced and thought it was heavenly. This is not like that at all except in the moistness. It is fool proof and so worth the little effort to make it. I have made it at least 30 times and it is always perfect. I am so spoiled to anything else. We eat it every morning for breakfast. We toast it and my husband puts the cream cheese on it. It is yummmmy. Makes a nice gift also.
