    Chef #880889's Note:

    Another fabulous recipe from the Barefoot Contessa! I made the other Date Nut Bread I posted then this one thinking I'd have a bake-off. Well, they are both great and very different! I wound up with 2 keepers! The bread is very nice served with the recommended orange cream cheese, but that is entirely optional.
