"This amazing traditional date loaf recipe came from my Grandma. Actually, it came from my Grandma’s Great Grandma, so it’s actually a 6th generation recipe! But I know what you’re thinking – Date Nut Loaf doesn’t sound or look particularly enticing. I agree. For me, it has always had an association with funerals- something you could expect to be served at a wake. And some may even consider it to be the ugly sister of Carrot Bread. You know, the loaf you’d grudgingly make if you were out of carrots, had to make a loaf and only had dates on hand. But trust me, it just has a bad rap that is completely unwarranted. You’ll want to take this loaf to the party!"

This date and nut loaf reminds me of my late father. He never ate anything sweet (not even chocolate!) but when he had the craving, which was very seldom, he wanted dates and the only cake he ever ate was a date and nut loaf. I often wish I could be like that as I am a sucker for sweet things. I'm going to make this recipe for a bit of nostalgia.
