This is a moist bread. I serve it as a desert! My daughter does not like raisins so I have made this bread increasing the dates to 12 oz and eliminating the raisins.

Awesome & Easy recipe!!!! Left out the Splenda ( I didn't have any) but didn't increase the sugar.. Came out perfect.

As all have said, this is delicious. I reduced the sugar, eliminated the raisins, and increased the dates. A good recipe to double and freeze a loaf.

This is the best date nut bread recipe I've found after trying several, I also make an all Splenda loaf for my diabetic father.
