So last week I had grits, and this week I have Date Nut Bread for you.
Both seem to have bad reputations amongst sassy food lovers. Why?
Grits have tons of cheese, and date nut bread is cake under the guise of “bread”, so you can eat as much as you want without admitting that you just ate an entire cake.
My mom and I did just that. Dinner? Nah, we’ll have some date nut bread.
I used this gluten free recipe. It makes a very small loaf, perfect for my mom and I to polish off without thinking twice.
Also, the dates I got from the grocery store took 5ever to chop up because they still had pits in them. Because all of the already pitted dates were sold out.
Take that, date nut bread naysayers. The dates were all sold out because I bet that everyone was going crazy to celebrate this holiday. H8erz to the left.
(what does that even mean?)
To finish off the flavor profile, I schmeared some cream cheese and honey onto my warm slice.
It’s good. This particular recipe is really not sweet. It’s very soft and moist, though, which is nice for a gluten free recipe. It definitely needs the cream cheese. I think it’s also kind of good for you? Or at least not terrible for you. So there’s that. Oh well, I’ll keep eating it.
