For PAC Spring 2010. Absolutely a do again. I have to admit ... I strayed from the recipe. I had oranges that needed using up, so used the orange juice instead of the water. AND because I am I making your Apricot Ginger Chicken for dinner and had way too much brandy for anything I'll ever use, I added 2 T apricot brandy to the mix. Thought I had walnuts on hand, didn't, so used pecans. But the outcome was fabulous. Thanks for the recipe! I'm giving you 5 stars!
Delicious. I don't keep dates so I subbed golden raisins and dried apricots. They filled in beautifully. it's sweet from the fruit without being sugary. When I make this again I'll use an 8x4 pan to make it a somewhat taller loaf. Mine came out of the oven fully baked and a rich gold color at 30 mins. This would be a perfect holiday sub for those who won't eat fruit cake btw. Made for Lavender Lynn's win of Myron's Twofer in Photo Tag.
A very good date bread. It keeps quite a while without drying out. Lavender Lynn, thanks for posting.
