Date and Walnut Loaf

Date and Walnut Loaf
This date and walnut loaf has no sugar added; dates and orange juice give this quick bread just the right amount of sweetness without making it overwhelmingly sweet.

  • 2 cups pitted dates
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • Zest of an orange
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour plus more for the pan
  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ cup olive oil plus more for the pan
  • ¼ cup apple sauce
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts

Preheat the oven to 350°F, oil and flour a loaf pan, set aside. Coarsely chop the dates and place them in a medium saucepan with the orange juice and zest, bring it to boil, turn off the heat, cover with a lid and let the dates cool to room temperature. Sift the flours; baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl. In another bowl mix the eggs, oil and apple sauce. Mix the egg mixture with the sifted dry ingredients, add the dates, fold in the walnuts and bake for about 50 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the middle of the loaf comes out clean. Let the date loaf cool before serving.

  • Megicim, ellerine saglik.. enfes gozukuyor canim..

    Tatli miydi tadi onu merak ettim.. bir de sanki nedense icine susam yakisirmis gibi geldi bana, ya da susam mantosu da fena durmazmis gibi :)

    Evrencim, susam olabilir gercekten, belki hatta hafif kavrulmus susam. :) Tadi tatli, ikimizin damak tadinin tatli konusunda cok yakin oldugunu dusunuyorum ve bence sana da yeterince tatli gelecek. Tabii seker ilave ederek yapmak mumku ama ben once bu sekilde bir dene derim.

  • This is so delicious! It tasted amazing just out of the oven, but even better the next day toasted for breakfast. Thanks for the recipe.
