Fruit & Nut Loaf

0 loaf
1 Hour 15 Minutes

Serve this loaf with a hot cup of coffee or tea for the ultimate comfort breakfast in the winter! If you have the time, warm it up in the morning with a bit of fresh butter. If you like a less sweet loaf, feel free to cut the sugar in half. We enjoy ours served with fresh fruit, like apple or orange slices. For a heartier breakfast serve with a side of Greek yogurt.

INSTRUCTIONS


1.

Preheat the oven to 350 F and prepare a loaf pan (we used a 9x5x3” pan) with parchment paper or lightly oil.

2.

In a small bowl, combine the chopped dates and boiling water, stir to combine, and let sit for 10 or more minutes to soak.

3.

In a large bowl, whisk together the whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

4.

In a separate medium bowl whisk together the egg, milk, oil and vanilla. Add to the dry ingredients along with the date mixture (do not drain) and nuts and stir to combine, until all of the dry ingredients are just mixed in.

5.

Transfer the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 50-60 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

6.

Cool and store at room temperature for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 1 month.
