This loaf is light with a tender crumb. It is rich with butter and cream cheese, lightened with eggs, sweetened with brown sugar and flavored with vanilla and a hint of almond. Chopped dates and walnuts are added for texture and interest. Dates are my new favorite food, I use them in any recipe calling for raisins--they work every time.
This recipe is perfect! I made it in four small Pampered Chef Stoneware Loaf pans. I plan on sharing these cute little loaves. But, one loaf was eaten warm, one loaf is for breakfast tomorrow (Dorie said they are better the second day). I better get the other 2 loaves out of the house quick. I have little self-control!
