Eggless Dates Bread | Easy & Simple Bread Recipes

Eggless Dates Bread
I have always dreamed of a scenario where,when the loaf of bread is empty I pull up my socks and bake a batch of my own bread loaf.Yes,I've dreamed of a similar scenario which featured cake before,but I guess I have mastered a bit in that area.After the series of bread we baked for WKtB,I think the confidence levels have upped a bit.

I'd bookmarked this recipe for Dates bread for a while now.Something about the recipe called out to me.At the back of my mind,I am always looking out for recipes which are simple and fuss free and this one fits the bill to the T.

The bread tasted delicious warm,but as it cooled down,the loaf was a bit dense.Nothing that a few pats of butter couldn't save and yes,it tasted great toasted too.The slight sweet bite from the dates and a nutty taste,I am trying this bread again for sure.
