Date, Banana and Rum Loaf (delicious)
« on: August 16, 2021, 04:21:24 am »
Date, Banana and Rum Loaf
250g stoned dates
2 small or 1 large banana (140g)
100g walnuts
200g raisins
200g sultanas
100g fine polenta
2 teaspoons mixed spice
2 teaspoons baking powder
3 tablespoons dark rum
2 egg whites
Heat oven to 180*. Prepare a loaf tin.
Put the dates into the bowl with 200ml of water. Cook approx 4 minutes on 100*, speed 1.
Let cool for a few minutes.
Add the bananas. Speed 3 for 20 seconds. Scrape the bowl down.
Add nuts, fruit, polenta, spice and baking powder. Also rum. Knead until it just comes together. Place into a bowl.
Whisk the egg whites to soft peaks. ( I used a beater)
Fold egg whites into the mixture.
Bake for 1 hour.
This is really nice. If cut into 10 slices each slice is 310 calories, 5g protein, 57g carbohydrate,1g saturated fat, 8g fat3g fibre, sugar 49g I cut it into more slices.

May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

It looks deliciously moist cookie - a nice, easy recipe.
