Date - Walnut Loaf


Ingredients:
  • Pitted dates, roughly chopped - 140 g
  • Walnuts, lightly toasted - 100 g
  • Baking soda - 11/2 Teaspoons
  • Salt - 1/4 Teaspoon
  • Unsalted butter, melted and cooled to room temperature - 3 Tablespoons
  • Warm water - 170 ml
  • Sugar - 155 g
  • Large eggs, lightly beaten - 2
  • Unbleached all purpose flour - 200 g
Method:
  • Pre heat the oven to 325 degree F.
  • In a large bowl, using a large rubber spatula, stir together the dates, walnuts, baking soda, salt, butter and water until combined. Mix in the sugar and eggs, then the flour.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan (81/2 by 41/2 inch) and bake until the cake is puffed and browned, and a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean, 50 - 55 minutes. Let cool completely on a wire rack.
