Date Nut Swirl Loaf

Made this sweet bread to have as an easy afternoon snack. XP loves dates and raisins so I put both in. Stored in the fridge to keep it from molding. I give it about 3 *s but XP would probably give it 4 or 5. Based on Cinnamon Walnut Swirl Loaf from 300 Best Canadian Bread Machine Recipes.

  • 1 c warm milk
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 t salt
  • 3 T sugar
  • 2 T butter, room temp
  • 3 c flour (all purpose or bread)
  • 1.25 t yeast

Filling

  • 4 oz dates, chopped
  • 2 T brown sugar
  • 1 t cinnamon
  • 1/2 c chopped walnuts
  1. Place dough ingredients in bread machine and set to Dough Cycle.
  2. Remove dough to lightly floured surface. Cover and let rest for 10-15 min.
  3. Roll out to 16x8 rectangle.
  4. Spread filling to within half an inch of the edges. Roll short end tightly.
  5. Place in greased 9x5 loaf pan. Cover and let rise for 30-45 min.
  6. Poke several holes through the risen dough.
  7. Bake at 350F for 40-50 min or until loaf sounds hollow when tapped on bottom.
