this is fantastic! i thought i had 1 1/2 bags of dates, but i only had 1/2 bag, so i added some chopped dried apples, pears and plums to make an even cup. i used 2 regular loaf pans and baked for 1 hour. these are dense, moist,nutty, fruity, delicious. i brought a loaf into the office and it disappeared. this one's a keeper.
