Notes about this recipe

    I don't always like date bread, but tried this based on the positive reviews. I loved it! It was done in 60 minutes and next time I'd check 5 minutes sooner. In a 9x5" pan, the loaf isn't very tall; it might look nicer in an 8x4" pan. Served with salted butter, as instructed - recommended.

    RT really undersells this little gem. I had low expectations going in but WOW, it's delicious. I found that 60 minutes was just right and any longer would have dried the loaf out. I took extra care to cut the dates very fine and I soaked them in the warm malt/butter sauce for a few minutes before stirring in the flour.

    p. 38 - RT describes this as a squat heavy little loaf that's densely chewy, deeply malted, heavy with fruit with almost a toffee flavour. Yum! Prepared in a loaf tin and calls for 150g malt extract and 150g of dates.
