British Date and Walnut Loaf Cake
This is an easy recipe to follow and it's great for any occasion. It's a very moist loaf cake, ideally cut into slices and buttered. It keeps very well in an airtight container - it usually doesn't last longer than a day in my house before it's all gone! [Recipe originally submitted to Allrecipes.co.uk]
Recipe Summary test
This cake freezes very well and a batch can be made in advance.
I have found this recipe is perfect when used with a metal loaf tin, rather than a silicone one. As silicone loaf tins can sometimes lose shape and the cake mixture may spill out over the sides.
I much prefer to use the loaf pan liners that are readily available from supermarkets, dollar stores, and kitchen specialists' shops. I've purchased from different shops and all have been the same excellent quality, the only difference has been the cost!
