Date Nut Bread

Cardamom Crumble

Honey Cream Cheese

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Here's how to make it: 

  1. To make the date nut bread, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a glass loaf pan with cooking spray. In a medium bowl, pour hot water over dates and let stand until slightly softened, about 5 minutes. Whisk in egg, oil and vanilla. In another bowl, stir together flours, baking soda, salt, pecans and brown sugar. Fold wet mixture into dry until just combined. Pour batter into prepared pan and smooth the top with a spatula. Bake about 65 minutes or until a tester inserted in the middle of the loaf comes out clean. Let rest 10 minutes, then turn out from pan onto a cooling rack.
  2. To make the honey cream cheese, beat all the ingredients until smooth with an electric mixer
  3. To make the crumble, in a pan melt and brown the butter over a medium to low heat. The butter will get foamy and turn a golden brown color. Meanwhile, in a bowl mix together the oats, brown sugar, cardamom and walnuts. Add the mixture to the pan with the brown butter. Mix, making sure the oats are all covered and soaked into the butter. Add the lemon juice and mix again, allowing the oats to get softer and a golden color. After about 5 minutes remove from the heat. Let the mixture cool and then top the date nut bread with the honey cream cheese spread. If you have leftover, it makes great granola for yogurt.
