Old-fashioned date and walnut loaf recipe is back on trend. Just like Nana used to make, spread with ricotta and top with a drizzle of honey.

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C. Lightly spray a 11cm x 22cm (base measurement) loaf tin with oil and line base with baking paper
  2. Place dates, butter, sugar and 180ml (3/4 cup) water in a saucepan and stir over medium heat gently bringing to the boil. Remove from heat and set aside to cool
  3. Place date mixture in a large bowl. Add eggs, walnuts and wholemeal flour, then sift over the self-raising flour and baking powder. Spoon mixture into prepared tin
  4. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until golden and a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Set aside to cool in tin for 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack. To serve, toast slices and spread with ricotta and drizzle with honey. Or spread simply with butter

How many grams for the walnuts, please? Did you mean half a cup of whole walnuts, then you chop them? It's so much easier if you could give an accurate weight like grams. The recipe looks very appetising. Thank you for sharing it.
