My friend Kris and I adapted this fantastic recipe. We added in a generous drop or two of rose water, which turns this already spectacular loaf into a sublime creation just begging to be devoured. . A note about this date and walnut bread – you can reduce the sweetener and make it more savoury. It does not have to be as decadent as I have made it here. I prefer it sweet served with a slather of butter.
The recipe calls for you to grease you baking tin with walnut oil. Whilst this does add an incredible flavour to the loaf, it is not absolutely essential if you don’t want to fork out the rather hefty price for walnut oil just for this recipe.
