Smiffy's Date and Walnut Loaf

This gluten free recipe was inspired by but largely ignores the Boiled Date Cake recipe from RecipeZaar. Copied from my recipe wiki, which is not available for public scrutiny. All measurements are approximate.

Pre-heat oven to 150°C

In the Saucepan

  • 100g butter
  • 3dl milk
  • 75g brown sugar
  • 300g dates – chopped
  • 80g walnuts, chopped
  • pinch cassia powder (cinnamon)
  • pinch ginger powder
  • pinch cardamon powder

Total weight of spice pinches approximately 2g.

Put on low heat until butter melted; stir well.

The Eggs

Whilst butter is melting, beat three eggs until frothy.

Final Mixture

Remove saucepan from heat, stir in 150g of rice flour. If doubling the batch, use just less than double the rice flour.

Stir in beaten eggs, beat, transfer to baking tin.

Bake for about 90 minutes.
