Banana dates loaf cake

I can’t really tell you how good this cake is, because I literally didn’t have a chance to taste it after my daughter had gotten her hands onto it. I guess that says enough, though, so let’s get baking, shall we?

As I always do, I asked my readers to take part, maybe tell me what they think about my recipes and give me some tips, as well. What do they think of this one? Do they like it, did they make someone important to them happy with it? Did it help them save some time? Simply, what do our readers say about this recipe? Here it comes:

“This is a great banana bread that you could eat without guilt. I don’t know anything about the author but the recipe is amazing!”

“Love this recipe! Very full of fibre and a nice sweetness without being too sweet. I use 1/4 cup of spelt flour and 1/4 cup of whole wheat flour as my flours are different, and I find it makes it a bit denser as well as giving a slightly darker colour to the loaf.”

“This is a great wonderful banana cake.”

“Loved how light and moist this banana bread was.”

“This cake is amazing. I normally don’t care for banana-based desserts, but this is very tasty. It’s not too sweet or anything, just right….”

“I made this cake last week and my husband is still talking about it today. He said it was the best banana bread he’s ever tasted.”

“This recipe is so good! This is definitely my new favorite banana bread recipe!”

“It’s better than any cake I have ever tasted.”

“This recipe is so so fantastic!!”

“I made this for Easter brunch and got great comments back from everyone who ate it. I also took some of the batter home for my family with no complaints.”
