This is very moist and tender. Just the right sweetness, cheese is not to over-powering. Very good all around bread.

Very good date bread! Not cheesy tasting at all, just moist, and nice crust on the outside. It's a very thick batter, so don't think you've forgotten to add something. And mine took a little over an hour to cook. I ended up turning the oven up to 350° for the last 5 minutes--for some reason, it didn't want to finish up cooking, lol. Served on our Thanksgiving table with cream cheese, of course. Everyone loved it! Thanks chia!

I made 1.25 times the recipe (with 2 eggs) because my Pyrex loaf pan is HUGE ~ I LOVED THIS! The bread is very good! I like the slices with cream cheese for breakfast. I over-baked mine a little because it kept testing not done using a toothpick! I think I was actually sticking the toothpick into a date each time ~ LOL ~ Made for Spring PAC 2009 ~ Thanks chia!
