2 loaves, 16 servings per loaf (serving size: 1 slice)

"This bread is easy to make. Because the dates soak overnight, the bread should be started the day before serving. I also like the fact that the recipe makes two substantial loaves - one to keep and one to give to a friend." CL Reader

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine the first 3 ingredients in a large bowl; cover date mixture, and let stand 24 hours.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 325°.

Step 3

Coat 2 (8 x 4-inch) loaf pans with cooking spray, and dust each pan with 2 teaspoons flour. Add the sugar, butter, vanilla, and egg to date mixture. Lightly spoon 2 1/4 cups flour into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Add flour and salt to date mixture, stirring just until blended. Divide the batter evenly between prepared pans.

Step 4

Bake at 325° for 45 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool the loaves 10 minutes in pans on a wire rack. Remove loaves from pans, and cool completely on wire rack.

Excellent!! Deceptively simple, but comes out great....even if you think you don't like dates, you will love this bread.
