Date Honey Nut Bread


6 Oz. whole dates (3/4 cup)

1 cup cake flour

1 tsp baking powder

3/4 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp salt

Pinch nutmeg

3/4 cup olive oil

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup honey

2 large eggs

1 tsp vanilla

1/2 cup chopped peacans

Nonstick cooking spray

Preheat your oven to 325, then put dates into a bowl and with very hot water.

Let the dates soak while you make the cake batter.

Sift together cake flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg.

In another bowl, whisk vegetable oil, brown sugar, honey, eggs and vanilla.

Pour the wet ingredients into dry and stir till a thick batter forms.

Drain water from the dates and pit the dates, then chop into small chunks.

Fold the peacans and date chunks into the batter.

Generously grease your loaf pan with cooking spray, then pour batter into pan.

Bake bread for about 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Remove from oven and set on a wire rack to cool. Enjoy!
