DATES AND OAT BREAD AND A CARD

Photobucket

After I have seen Irish Freckle Bread at Vanillastrawberryspringfields, really tempted to try out but when checked my pantry most of the ingredients are not in hand so just settled down with this one. Made the right choice not only it turns out delicious, a hit with my kids and of course healthy. Would be making this bread again with other fruit.

INGREDIENTS

1 and 1/2 cups wheat flour
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup pitted dates
1 cup strong tea
1 teaspoon soda bicarbonate
1/4 cup rolled oat
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter

METHOD

1. Preheat oven @ 175 C. Soak dates in hot tea for 15 minutes.

2. While still warm add in the soda bicarbonate, butter and sugar.

3. Blend in flour and oat with dates mixture.

4. Transfer batter to 8 x 4 inches greased loaf pan, bake for 30 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.

5. Cool on pan for 5 minutes before removing.

6. Slice when completely cool. Enjoy...
