Date & Walnut Loaf

Date & Walnut Loaf with bananasThis is one post I can’t claim credit for as it is a recipe from my Great Grandma in Australia, but this old-fashioned favorite just goes to show you don’t need new fancy recipes to enjoy a healthy treat. This is low in saturated fat compared to most cakes but still has a deliciously MOIST texture and sweet taste. Hope you enjoy!
