Hello! A little late but none the less, done. I just couldn't wait one night, one day to slice this bread! Upon tasting it, I now wish that I had slice up whole dates. I used chopped dates, which were very soft but a bigger date would've been grand. This was easy to whip up, so I'll have to try again. I made three small loaves from half a recipe. Not too shabby! Thanks to Mary of Popsicles and Sandy Feet for a yummy bread!
