Date loaf just got even better!

Today I decided to make my favourite date loaf and noticed I had pistachios and ground almonds in the fridge. So with a little bit of ingredient substitution, date loaf became even more delicious! Here's the recipe.

1 cup chopped dates
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon butter
1 cup boiling water
0.75 cups wholemeal flour
0.75 cups ground almonds
1 cup shelled pistachios
1 teaspoon baking powder

Put dates, butter and soda into a bowl. Pour boiling water over and mash slightly. Mix in the flour, ground almonds, pistachios and baking powder, pour into a loaf tin and bake about 50 minutes at 200 degrees C (400 degrees F). Slice and serve with butter.

This is a quick, easy snack to whip up when you realise you have guests arriving in an hour or so. It can be served warm or cold, and also freezes well for later lunches.
