Popsicles and Sandy Feet. You can find the recipe for this fabulous loaf cake - prepared the "correct" way at her webpage. Sandy is in a couple other groups with me and she always has delicious goodies to share on her webpage. Check it out.
Would you believe Publix did not have any dried dates? I used to remember always buying Dromedary dates that came in a box. I wanted to make this so I ended up getting dried apricots. Dorie's recipes are usually very adaptable so I figured it would work.
The recipe says your mix will look curdled at first and not to worry. I'm glad it said that because mine looked really curdled in the bowl until I added the flour.
I have to say that the smell coming from my oven was heavenly. It was a mix of almond flavoring and apricots. You have to love those smells! It seemed like it took a long time to cook, but bread loaves usually do. I couldn't wait to cut into it. Mine was a bit on the dry side, but tasty. Anyone else have that issue? Also, it appears I did not fold the apricots and nuts in appropriately as they are random throughout the cake.
Delicious. Thank you Mary!!
