Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

  1. Grease a loaf pan or line with baking paper. Set oven to  180℃. 

    Place dates in bowl and chop 6 sec / speed 8.

- An alternative milk can be used.

  • This loaf was easy to make

    This loaf was easy to make and was quite tasty.  It was a bit dry (more like a  banana bread) presumably because it doesn't contain any oil.  We enjoyedthe loaf serving some slices buttered and some plain.  Thanks for the recipe.
