Date and Walnut Bread
nonstick cooking spray
1-3/4 cup unbleached, all purpose flour
¾ cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon table salt
1 cup chopped dates
¼ cup unsalted butter, cut into 4 pieces
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup water
½ cup chopped walnuts
Spray a (8 x 4-1/2 x 2-1/2”) loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray.
Sift the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt together in small mixing bowl; reserve. Place the chopped dates, butter, and vanilla into a larger mixing bowl; reserve.
Place the water in a microwave safe measuring cup and microwave on high (PL 10) for 2:30 minutes in the Cuisinart® Convection Microwave Oven with Grill. Pour water over the dates and butter and stir together until the butter is completely melted. Stir in dry ingredients until fully incorporated and then stir in the chopped walnuts.
Pour batter into prepared loaf pan. Preheat oven to 325°F on the convection setting. Place loaf pan on the grill rack in the lower rack position and bake for 45 minutes. Use a cake tester to test for doneness. If bread needs more time, bake for an additional 5 minutes.
When done, remove bread from oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan. Cool completely before slicing and serving.
