I had plenty of dates lying around in my kitchen. My son suggested to bake a bread/cake to clear my pantry. Yes, it is indeed a great idea.
After going through my old collection of recipes, this one attracted me since it is pretty simple to whip up and use all the ingredients I have in hand.
Oh my goodness, this bread is damn yummy with right balance of sweetness came from the dates. This is a keeper, will bake this often.
2 and 1/4 C all purpose flour
1 C pitted dates chopped
1/2 C melted butter
1 C milk
1/4 C sugar
1/2 C hot water
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
* Soak chopped dated in hot water for 30 minutes. Preheat oven @ 180 C. Lightly grease the 8 in pan or loaf pan.
* Combine together butter, sugar, milk, salt and baking powder until well mixed. Mix in the dates.
* Gradually add flour, mix until just combined.
* Spoon mixture into prepared pan and bake for 25-30 minutes of until a skewer inserted comes out clean.
* Cool on wire rack.
