Date Loaf

Date Loaf created by Anonymous

This recipe is from the Edmonds Cook Book. My kids love this, especially as an after school snack with a glass of milk. It has a lovely rich caramel flavour. I make mine without the walnuts and it's still great. Prep time includes 1 hour for soaking dates in boiling water.

    Made this today with half the sugar (used turbinado as we were out of brown), egg whites and a little extra butter and turned out great. Also added 1/4 teaspoon each of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. So good with cream cheese!

    Very dissapointed with texture ,taste it was just to be thrown in the bin. Not sure how all those 5 stars appeared .It is very annoying however quick the recipe may be to have to bin it. Best to not put it u at all.
