Pumpkin Bread with Dates

The handsome date palm flourishes in the desert climates of the Middle East and North Africa and in Southern California. The buttery rich fruits grow in large bunches containing up to a thousand dates. Varying from oval to elongated, they have a paper-thin skin and a long pit. Dates are classified as soft, semidry or dry, according to their moisture content. Medjool, Khadrawy and Halawy are the commonly marketed soft dates. Deglet Noor and Zahidy are the most popular semidry dates. Whole and pitted dates are available year-round.

This dessert loaf is really yummy with coffee, regular or decaf, but cut the sugar back to 3/4 cup or 1 cup. The dates are sweet, and no one needs to consume this much sugar anyway. Figure out how to incorporate toasted nuts like organic almonds or walnuts, and substitute whole-wheat flour for white flour or mix the two. Keep this, and yourself healthy!
Do heed the first reviewer's advice to bake for a full 70 minutes.
Cool on a rack for an hour or more, and then turn out onto the rack to cool completely before slicing. Your slices will not be thin, and they may not all be intact. Let the loaf have its way. Refrigerate and/or freeze. Reheat to serve.
Seasonably swell and addictivel When organic berries return to markets nationwide, or just where you live, kick the habit.
Pros: Adaptable, Will Make Again, moist and delicious, comfort cake
Cons: Ingredients

Wonderful home baked treat

My husband and I have really enjoyed this bread. The dates give the bread a great flavor and texture. It does need to bake the full 70 minutes, as the center was to soft.
Will make this again.
