  • This loaf tasted great but

    This loaf tasted great but the texture was stodgy. I wonder if that may have been because the Thermomix 'grinded' the nuts and dates rather than 'chopped' them? Also there are no eggs in this recipe (unlike the one in Best Recipes). I'll definitely try making it again though as it tasted great!
