Sugar Free Date Loaf

Sugar Free Date Loaf


My family just loves this Sugar Free Date Loaf Recipe.  It is a school lunch box must have  and a Mummy Morning Tea must.

The  sugar content of this recipe has been removed and replaced with a banana. The cake isn’t sweet but a lovely compliment to a cup of tea. Bananas are definitely a great  replacement to sugar.  Try them in chocolate cake too.  The riper the better too!

2 cups of SR Flour

1 teaspoon of Bicarb of Soda

140 grams of pitted chopped dates

1 cup of Milk

2 Eggs

1 ripe banana, mashed


1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees.

2.Sift flour and bicarb of soda into a bowl.

3. Stir through chopped dates and mashed banana with a wooden spoon.

4. Add milk and eggs, folding through the mixture until all is combined.

5. Pour cake mixture into a pre-prepared loaf tin.

6. Place in oven for 45 mins.

Allow cake to cool and then slice. Place snack sized portions into snack zip lock bags and freeze. Suitable to be taken out of freezer on the morning cake is required.

    Is it really 1 tablespoon of bicarb soda! Or is it a miss print? Just baked this and it’s in the oven but I am regretting doing the full tbsp of bicarb!! Can you tell me for future if it really is that much because mixture tastes like soap! 🙂 thanks! Also email isn’t working so can you reply to my comment.

      I sincerely apologise Sarah this is a typo and is meant to be 1 Teaspoon not Tablespoon.

    Hi, was introduced to your site, looking for sugar free baking, esp cakes. Could you tell me what is SR Flour? Is it normal flour cos I come from Asia, thanks.

      Hi Lyn SR stands for Self Raising Flour. I am not sure what the Asian equivalent is.
