"I've made this probably 5 or 6 times and it is amazing! I usually leave out the chopped dates and add a few more chocolate chips :) We've had special requests to make this bread over and over again. Thank you for posting!!"
"I thought this loaf was quite nice. It was very easy to make, smelled absolutely divine when it was cooking, but was lacking something I thought. Next time I'd definitely add more nuts, because I couldn't taste them. Maybe some cardamom too?? Thanks for posting"
"A critical team of 7 people (5 Swiss, 1 Italian and 1 from Holland) tasted this cake and the overall verdict was three stars. We all thought this cake tasted very much like a winter cake."
"This sounds so good for a luscious breakfast bread, or to be served with a cup of strong Greek or Turkish coffee. I really like this one!"
"An interesting combination of flavours! Yes, this recipe is - very easy to make, smells wonderful when baking; baked for 1 hour 10 minutes. The flavour is different, but good! Using 1 cup of brown sugar and the dates did make the loaf quite sweet. I am curious about the name?? Mystic Moon?? Good luck in the RSC contest!!"
"I was really looking forward to this, but it did not turn out quite as I had hoped. The bake time was too long ( mine was over done at 50 minutes). The combo of the dates and chocolate was too sweet for my tastes. It was also a little too dense for my preference. But I do give my praise to the creator coming up with a dessert type dish for this contest. I really racked my brain to think of one to enter and I couldn't come up with anything!"
"I had hoped to make this during the first round and ran out of time. This has a nice flavor; however, it was a little dry. Maybe if I had soaked the dates first or added some oil to the batter. In my oven and at my altitude the bread was done in about 45 minutes."
"Mmm, Mmm, Mmm- this was scrumptious! I found myself going back for 2nds and 3rds... I had most of the ingredients on hand which was also nice. I'm a big fan of tahini, pistachios and chocolate so this was a winner in my book. My sisters enjoyed the morsels that I was willing to part with as well..."
"Had to supply morning tea for work and I wanted to try this RSC recipe so two birds were killed with one stone. Popular loaf which everyone enjoyed and the tahini got a lot of people by surprise. Very easy to make."
"This bread was very good,but I did not like the overwhelming tahini taste."
"This was the first RSC recipe that caught my eye and I'm so glad that I gave it a try! This was a great loaf and the perfect mix of ingredients. I froze the extras for another day. i plan to add this to my OAMC public breakfast cookbook when the recipes become available. Thanks for creating this recipe and good luck!"
"I made this for my neighbor who just got out of the hospital. It was so easy to make and smelled so good while it baked! He and his wife said it was awesome! Congrats Chef on a great recipe!"
"This quick bread was wonderful. I liked that it wasn't to sweet....and it baked very nicely too. I appreciate the lower fat content too! I found it easy to make...and really easy to eat!"
