Yield: 20 Servings
|\N \N||-JUDI M. PHELPS (BNVX05A)|
|½ cup||Brown sugar|
|1⅓ cup||Whole wheat flour|
|¾ cup||Oat bran flakes|
|2 teaspoons||Baking powder|
|1 teaspoon||Baking soda|
|1 cup||Dates; chopped|
|1 cup||Walnuts; chopped|
Beat together first 5 ingredients until blended. Mix together the remaining ingredients and add all at once. Beat until blended. Do not overbeat.
Divide batter between 5 greased mini-loaf pans (6x3x2-inches) and bake in a 350 degree oven for about 45 minutes, or until a cake tester, inserted in center, comes out clean. Allow to cool in pan for 10 minutes, and then remove from pans and continue cooling on a rack. Yields: 5 mini-loaves.
Note: Oat bran can be purchased in most supermarkets or health food stores. It comes as "milled" or "stone-ground". The milled is finer in texture and the stone-ground will produce a slightly coarser crumb, which adds a little character to this country-style loaf.
