Dates bread (Eggless and Sugarless)


After the success of Eggless and Sugarless Banana bread, I wanted to try the dates bread . I prepared it very similar to the banana bread. The dates bread came out very soft and tasty. I felt that the bread had enough sweetness. But my husband who is a great sweet lover wanted it to be a little more sweeter. So if you are a sweet loving person like my husband, maybe you can add some sugar to this. But I enjoyed the sugarless version a lot.






What you need?

1 cup Wheat flour
1/2 tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp Baking soda
1/4 tsp Salt

15 pitted Dates
1/4 cup Honey
3/4 cup Milk
3 tbsp Oil

1 tbsp each Almonds and Raisins


How to prepare?

Soak the dates in warm milk for about 15-20 minutes. (Microwave the milk with dates in it for 45 sec to 1 minute). After soaking time is over, put this in a blender and make a smooth paste. Transfer to a bowl and add honey and oil to this. Mix well and the dates mix is ready.

Preheat the oven to 350F. Lightly spray the oil on all the sides of a baking pan.

Add the dry ingredients to a bowl - Wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt. Mix well. Now slowly add the dates mix to this and constantly mix the flour. Add the nuts and raisins.Mix everything well so as to get a smooth paste (not very runny though).

Pour this to the pan and bake for about 30 to 35 minutes. Keep an eye on the oven after 25 minutes itself. Insert a knife or tooth pick  to see if it comes out clean.


Notes:
*Add about 1/4 cup sugar if you want to make the bread more sweeter.

Hi, I just made this today..but with a few changes. I did not have dates so I added raisins instead. And I also added a pinch if nutmeg. Final result was wonderful though..very simple and quick.
