    Bergy's Note:

    This was my playmate's mother's recipe Oh how I loved this date loaf! (Doris Eppinger --neeAllen). After school if we were lucky we'd get a slice. I hope it tastes as good now as it did 63 years ago.

      Delicious! I am a new baker so am trying A LOT of loaves and this is only the second one I have found to be really interesting, moist and that I would serve to friends/family. To test out different combos I made three mini loaves out of the recipe: one w/ walnuts, one w/ pecans and one w/out nuts. The one with pecans was by far my favourite. I highly recommend this recipe. I might add another 1/2 cup of dates to the entire thing simple b/c I like a lot going on in my baking. But it was definitely fine as is. ENJOY!
