  • I used only 160 g of sugar

    I used only 160 g of sugar and half of the cardamom but added 1/2 tsp of cinnamon and nutmeg.

    i also used a supermarket gluten free flour.  Yum, a family favourite.

  • Nice date loaf recipe. I like

    Submitted by Jaydup on 4. November 2012 - 12:24.

    Nice date loaf recipe. I like the chunkiness of the dates & walnuts, although, of course, you can wiz it up more if you like a smooth loaf.

    I'm not a huge fan of that much Cardamom, so next time I'll use the same amount of Mixed Spice.  You could also use a combination of Cinnamon & Nutmeg.

    And in answer to a previous question, Date Loaves don't contain eggs.  I think the combination of the hot water & baking soda gives the lightness that eggs usually would in a cake.
