I haven’t made Date Nut Bread in a really long time. And it’s not because I don’t love it, I really do, but other family members tend to add it to their holiday baking platters so I never really saw a need to make it myself.

This year, I was craving a slice with slathered with some cream cheese so I decided to make some myself. This recipe makes two loaves so I kept one out for my family to enjoy; then froze the other one to slice up for my own holiday baking platters later this month.

For this recipe you’ll need chopped dates, baking soda, boiling water, eggs, vanilla extract, canola oil, salt, sugar, all purpose flour and chopped walnuts. Start by adding the dates, baking soda and boiling water to a large mixing bowl; then allow to sit for 5 minutes. Next, add the eggs, vanilla, and oil; then mix well. Finally, add the remaining dry ingredients and mix with a wooden spoon.

Spray two loaf pans (approximately 9″x5″) with cooking spray; then divide the batter into the two pans. Place the Date Nut Bread into a preheated 350 degree F oven for 40-45 minutes or until the top springs back when touched.

Sometimes Date Nut Bread can be a little dry, but this recipe came out super moist. My tip is to check the bread 5 minutes before the time is up to check for doneness. As soon as the top can spring back, take it out of the oven to avoid over baking. Once cooled you can also dust it with a little powdered sugar like I did as well, but it’s not necessary.

Needless to say, this loaf didn’t last very long as we ate it for breakfast and then again as an after dinner snack. You can get 8-10slices out of each loaf or cut it in half for smaller portions if you’re adding it to your cookie platters. ~Enjoy!
