When I make breads or anything, for that matter, than I can put into the freezer for later, I make double or triple batches... GO BIG, OR GO HOME! Plus, I'm the type who just likes to do it, make the mess, and get it over with.
I love a good sweet bread slathered with butter - who doesn't? And even though I despise the taste of coffee, I actually love this date bread recipe, but I NEVER add nuts to my breads. Why? Eating a nut in some bread or in a cookie or in a brownie is like a bad surprise party in your mouth... or the unwanted guest at a party that no one felt comfortable telling not to come... you know what I mean... "Oh my goodness, this bread is SOOOO amazing... oh wait, is that a nut? Well, it was good... sure wish someone hadn't invited that nut to the party!"
Baking around the holidays gives me the chance to gift homemade items, and who doesn't love some good homemade baked goods to soften the waistline toward the end of the year?
Date Bread (nuts optional)*
*keep in mind that I triple this recipe when I make it - you'll need 8 or 9 mini loaf pans for that undertaking.
Trust me, you and your gift-receiving friends will LOVE this baked-with-love treat!
