Quick breads are a snap to prepare as the ingredients are simply mixed together in a large bowl, spooned into a loaf pan and baked. In less than one and a half hours you will have a warm delicious loaf on the table. Preparation only takes 15 to 20 minutes and the baking itself is about an hour. No wonder they are so popular.
This Dates and Zucchini Bread recipe was adapted from Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook. I halved the sugar and nuts and added half a cup of chopped dates. There was enough sweetness in the dates to make up for lack of sugar. Actually I think half a cup sugar is plenty. I also added a half cup milk as it appeared to be a little dry while I was mixing the ingredients together. That really helped as the bread was tender and moist and not too dense.
This bread makes a great mid morning or afternoon snack. If you like the idea of zucchini bread but want it for breakfast or dinner, check out my Zucchini Loaf. I do have another recipe using dates as in Dates and Granola Bread.
Enjoy…..and have a wonderful day! 😎
