sunday baking: nut loaf


Hi everyone! It’s been a long time since my last post about baking… Well, life’s been bit hectic lately but this Sunday I’m back in my kitchen baking this yummy and rather healthy nut loaf. As always, being a lazy baker I am, this is very very easy to make. All you need are sauce pan and wooden spoon and a bit chopping and stirring and mixing πŸ™‚ Less appliances to wash after too!

So, here is the recipe:

In a large sauce pan boil:

1 cup water

2/3 cup raw sugar

1 tbspn butter

1 tspn bicarb soda/bsking soda

125g dates, chopped

Allow to cool then add:

1 1/2 cups self-raising flour

1 egg beaten

75g walnuts, chopped

Grease loaf tin, line it with baking paper. Bake in 180C for 1/2 hour. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before turning out. Best served warm with butter and a cuppa!


PS: Pictures taken with Iphone 6 so perhaps it’s not as cool as if it’s taken with the real camera πŸ™‚ The loaf is pretty moist even after couple days.

Have an awesome Sunday people!
