Grain Free Date Loaf

Up until recently baking without gluten and sugar has been the pits. I adore all things coconut, but I just cannot bribe my taste buds to accept coconut flour as an acceptable substitute.

The girls have considered disowning me. I knew from the telling looks in their eyes that when I baked my last batch of revolting coconut flour brownies that I needed to come up with something pretty magical and quick!

One of the first things Annaliese asked me to cook when she moved up to Darwin earlier this year was my Thermomix Date Loaf. I knew if I could convert this winner of a recipe to be grain free without them knowing that I could redeem myself in the kitchen.

Hence, this delightful grain free date loaf was born. It is ideal for morning or afternoon tea and can even be sliced and toasted for a delicious Winter breakfast served with hot tea. 

I have tested it at least a dozen times just to be sure that it’s perfect and gained an extra few kilos in the process.

Always RUNGRY.

Now I’m back baking again I can honestly say that I prefer the Tefal Cuisine Companion over the Thermomix for mixing cake batters. It blends and mixes all the ingredients perfect every time with the touch of a button. 

I have included instructions for each machine below as well as the good ol’ fashion method.
