Date and walnut loaf is a traditional bread eaten in Britain, made using dates and walnuts. It is often made with treacle or tea to give it a dark brown colour. Traditionally from Scotland, date and walnut loaf is still enjoyed in many tea rooms around the country.
What is date nut bread made of? Cream sugar and butter together. Add eggs, vanilla, dates and soaking liquid, nuts, flour, and salt. Divide batter equally between two 9x5-inch (or three 8 1/2x4 1/2-inch) greased loaf pans. Bake 1 hour at 300 degrees F (150 degrees C) (or until loaf tests done). This bread will stay good when stored properly for 4-5 days at room temperature.
