Taking a bit of a break from cookie baking, I want to share this quick bread recipe with you. A little twist on a traditional date bread, it can be made into loaves of various sizes and wrapped up for a wonderful holiday gift.
Date nut bread is one of those ubiquitous recipes. If you do a web search for it, you’ll find essentially the same recipe over and over. I have been intrigued by the premise of Kahlua date bread, but I have somehow waited until now to try it. The Kahlua version, like the original, is also saturating the internet search engines. So, I apologize for that, but only half-heartedly because it is so very good.
This bread is quite solid and sturdy, while still being chewy. The Kahlua flavor really comes through and is just lovely. If I were a coffee drinker, I imagine that I would adore a slice of this with a fresh hot cup.
If you want to push this tasty treat over the top, spread a little cream cheese on it. Even better, a little cream cheese mixed with pecans. You may just end up keeping this one for yourself this holiday season.
