Date Nut Bread Recipe Photo - Diabetic Gourmet Magazine Recipes

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup diced dried dates
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
  • 1 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup low-fat (1%) milk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar, for topping


Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9x5-inch loaf pan with nonstick spray.
  2. Place the dried dates and water in a small saucepan; heat over medium heat until the water simmers; reduce the heat to low and simmer, 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flours, walnuts, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Make a well in the center.
  4. In another medium bowl, stir together the brown sugar, milk, oil, egg, and vanilla until well blended. Pour into the well of the flour mixture; stir just until combined (do not over-mix), about 1 minute. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
  5. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 35 minutes. Cool in the pan on a rack, 5-10 minutes, then remove from the pan and place on the rack to finish cooling.
