Accessories you need



This recipe is very easily adaptable to suit your preferences. I always use 55g minimum free range eggs, wholemeal flour, local/raw honey and dark brown sugar.

Hazelnuts can be substituted with almonds.

Chopped dates are best hand chopped and even better if soaked. They can still be used dried if necessary.

Ovens vary so much, please keep an eye on your loaf! If it is browning too quickly, then cover the loaf and lower the oven temp slightly, and bake for a little longer if necessary.
