Gluten Free Date and Walnut Loaf

My friend Kris and I adapted this fantastic recipe from the November 2007 edition of Delicious Magazine in Australia. 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. Rose water is so wonderfully fragrant, that Kris wisely encourage me to add it into baked goods, puddings and other sweet treats as an ingenious way to reduce the sweetener required. The recipe calls for you to grease your baking tin with walnut oil. Whilst this does add an incredible flavor 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. I have also listed the rose water as optional. This version is a little bit more dense and browns on the top more quickly. You might have to cover with foil for the last fifteen minutes of cooking time.
