About this recipe: This date and banana loaf cake is tried and tested and enjoyed by all of the family. Studded with sweet dates, this cake has natural sweetness from fruit, meaning you can use less sugar.
Really moist cake which I wanted to make as healthy as possible so I did 60 gr plain flour, 50 gr wholemeal and instead of full cream milk I added full cream yoghurt + 1 tbspn milk and a few walnuts, tspn baking powder also a tspn vanilla essence. It actually took approx 1 hour altogether. It was gorgeous. I had it with yoghurt on as my dessert tonight. - 28 Feb 2015
This was perfect I followed everything except I used light muscovado sugar instead. I used a mixture of Jordanian medjoul dates, and 'kalmi' dates from Madinah. Absolutely fab. Couldn't get enough of it and it's been on very high demand to bake again! Definitely recommend this recipe. - 23 Jul 2016
A lovely light cake which tasted better than expected - not too sweet and the perfect balance of date and banana. I substituted the caster sugar for dark brown muscovado which gave it a moist, slightly sticky texture which was great! So simple to bake - I'll definitely make this again, possibly with the addition of walnuts or sultanas. - 28 Feb 2016
