Hello everyone
I am hoping someone can help me find a date nut bread recipe. I am also looking for banana nut bread, and pumpkin spice bread. PLEASE.
Thank you in advance for all your help.

I don't know how no one answered you!

Here is a banana bread recipe using bisquick:

2 1/3 c. bisquick
1/3 c. oil,
3 eggs,
3 mashed bananas
1c sugar
1/2 c chopped nuts
2 tsp. vanilla

mix all, bake in loaf pan @ 350 for 55-65 minutes.

When I want date nut bread, I just add about 6-8 chopped dates to the above recipe. I use medjool dates from california, they have them at costco, 2 lb. for 7.99. I don't knwo where else to get this kind of date other than middle eastern store. Anyway, the dates are sticky so chop them up and when you throw them into the batter be sure to break them all up or you will have clumps of dates in your bread!

This is a kind of basic recipe, you can use just about any chopped, diced, or smooshed fruit you want in it. I have a lot of diced figs and dried cranberries, so I generally use those and make muffins instead of bread. Almost any basic quick bread recipe will work, you just tune it up with whatever you want, varying the spices accordingly. If it's something more wet than not, like mashed banana or pumpkin, you decrease the oil a bit. If it seems too dry, try adding a bit of milk [a few tablespoons] and stirring that in very thoroughly. If you want the bread to be lighter in color, use all white sugar, if you want it darker, use the darkest brown sugar or even a bit of molasses as part of the sugars.

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 teaspoons ground cinnamon or other spices
3 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
1 1/4 cups white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups chopped fruit
1 cup chopped walnuts
Grease and flour two 8 x 4 inch pans. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
Sift flour, salt, baking powder, soda, and cinnamon together in a bowl.
Beat eggs, oil, vanilla, and sugar together in a large bowl. Add sifted ingredients to the creamed mixture, and beat well. Stir in fruit and nuts until well combined. Pour batter into prepared pans.
Bake for 40 to 60 minutes, or until tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in pan on rack for 20 minutes. Remove bread from pan, and completely cool.

I don't know if this is relevant or not--but I made some rye bread a few months ago and the recipe included a couple of teaspoons of cocoa, to make the bread darker. I didn't taste the cocoa after baking.

I Googled and learned that the canned date nut bread of my childhood is not available in most parts of the US now. That's what I think of when I think of date nut bread--dark and moist and round.

I think you can bake bread in metal cans?

ETA: Here's a recipe for 'Steamed Pumpkin Bread w/Walnuts and Dates'--baked in a can>>>

Every recipe for rye using cocoa has been some version of Russian rye, and it's scruptious. The steamed date/nut bread is still in a lot of grocery stores, but it's usually on the top shelf over cans of baked beans - or so I've found, along with Boston brown bread.

There's another kind of bread that's baked in cans, coffee cans actually, called kulich. It's a Russian Easter bread, and tastes a lot like hot cross buns, only a bit sweeter. I've never made it, but I've sure eaten plenty of it! It's also similar in flavor to Greek Easter bread, and the Jewish challah.

I don't have a recipe for Date-Nut Bread but would be happy to serve as a taste tester

Spread with cream cheese and accompanied by a steamy cup of coffee or cocoa there's not too much better on a winter's day.

I finally found date nut bread in a can. Like days gone by[url]http://www.vermontcountrystore.com]Vermont Country Store - Apparel, Personal Care, Food, Candy and Country Home Products. It is very reasonably priced. I can hardly wait to see hubby and his fathers faces when I surprise them both Christmas morning.

I thought I'd revive this thread and ask: I'm looking for a recipe that's close to the round date nut loaf sold by Neuman's Bakery of Addison ILL, it's hit or miss getting it locally. I've tried a few recipes I found online but nothing close so far. If anyone remembers the English Muffin people Thomas had a date nut loaf years ago, I'm looking for something moist with a sticky exterior like that one was.

Saw this one with Thomas date nut bread mentioned.
