Date Nut Bread

When you have a homemade rich and chewy date nut bread on hand in the fridge or freezer, you can be an instant hero. It's what Mama would make when she wanted to treat us.

What You'll Need

  • 2 cups chopped pitted dates
  • 2/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup very hot water
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts

What to Do

  1. In a large bowl, combine dates, sugar, honey, and butter. Add he water, stir; let stand for 15 minutes. Preheat oven to 325�F.

  2. Stir egg and vanilla into date mixture. In a separate bowl, combine remaining ingredients. Stir the flour mixture into the date mixture.

  3. Pour batter into a greased 9 x 5-inch loaf pan and bake for 1 hour or until wooden toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clear. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then remove from pan and allow t cool completely on a wire rack.

  4. Makes 1 loaf.


This bread is great with breakfast, lunch, brunch, or in you dinner roll basket. And it's even easier if you buy the dates already chopped!

We are not big date fans, what would you recommend as a substitute?

You can substitute the dates for raisins or dried cranberries. Yum! :)

This sounds delicious, I'm going to make it, for sure!
