TWD- Date-Nut Loaf

June 21 – Mary of Popsicles and Sandy Feet chose Date-Nut Loaf on page 228 of BFMHTY by Dorie Greenspan.

I wrote my post for this last night and programmed it to publish at midnight, somehow it disappeared.  How very very odd!  Moving on (and repeating myself).

This is a simple loaf with a surprise ingredient of cream cheese.  I didn’t taste it and I am not sure if it added anything special.  Given the long bake time, I think this ended up a touch dry.  I would bake it a touch less next time.  I liked the date throughout.  I read someone else thought of them as almost chocolate like and I agree.

No great surprise that Matt liked it with custard.  Now go and check out the TWD blogroll and see what the others thought.

  1. Mine was dry too. But tasty. Yours looks very moist. I’m not sure about the cream cheese either, but since I love cream cheese I figured it would be good in it.

  2. The coloring on yours is the best I’ve seen. So pretty! I loved this loaf. So fun to use dates.

  3. How odd… mine was very moist and I thought that it was from the cream cheese! 🙂 Nice looking loaf, Andrea!

  4. Oh, sorry yours was dry! Looks beautiful anyways and sounds yummy with custard

  5. Mine was too perfect, I’ve eaten too much. i usually cook cakes less than dorie recommends. Cookies I need to cook longer. Crazy, delicious science of baking. Have a great day.

  6. I feel like the cream cheese kept my cake from being dry, but some still had a problem with that. I love dates so I really liked this recipe.

  7. the color looks rich and wonderful. nice job!

  8. It looks great! I used sour cream in place of the cc and it worked well.
