I came across this recipe for banana-date tea cake and was automatically convinced it was something I wanted to try out, mostly because I am very fond of dates and find that they are severely lacking in our selection of sweet breads. Also, Dana Treat does a tremendous job with pictures, proving yet again that a picture is worth a thousand words.
Not surprisingly, this tea cake is best accompanied with a cup of coffee or tea serving to neutralize the richness of the ingredients. One slice of this stuff was definitely enough to tie me over to dinner.
It would also be a great treat to bring along on a hike as it contains dates, walnuts and bananas, giving you sufficient fiber, iron, potassium and natural sugars to sustain high energy levels.
