If you are a regular reader of my blog
you may remember My dear Nanna
passed away in November.
This afternoon I baked her
Date & Walnut Loaf
using two of her nutloaf tins.
As a child I spent a lot of time baking with her
so it felt so good to bake this recipe today
the smells of it baking and the taste of it again
warmed my heart xxx
I'd love to share the recipe with you
it's very easy and so yummy!
Nanna's Date & Walnut Loaf
Place in a bowl
1 1/2 cups chopped dates
1/2 cup walnuts (or other nuts)
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon bi-carb soda
1 tablespoon butter
1 cup of boiling water
1 Cup Self Raising Flour
1 Cup Plain Flour
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 teaspoon salt
Mix only until well blended.
Place in 2 greased nutloaf tins, Place lids on
Stand Upright on bottom shelf in oven
Bake for 50mins in Mod oven.
Eat while warm and serve with butter - yum!!!
If you don't have nutloaf tins with lids,
You can use a normal breadmaking loaf tin,
but the proper nutloaf tins make it taste just like my Nanna's :)
