In praise of DK: Banana-Date-Walnut Loaf

The only thing edible I photographed last month was that brilliant banana-date-walnut loaf that I cooked up, thanks to a wonderful DK cookbook. Ever since, I have started looking at DK books with renewed respect. To me, making anything out of squishy bananas, suitable enough for actual consumption is a miracle, and if it turns out as yummy as it did, it is a testament to the fact that I am working at a really great place! Rarely did I praise my workplace as much as I did after discovering the wealth of goodness stocked in every page of a DK book. Yep, carefully tested, tasted and verified. DK books are fantastic :)

The loaf is moist, sweet with that extra crunch of walnuts, a perfect teatime snack. And, best of all, it stayed fresh for over two weeks in the refrigerator.

Anyhow, after this preliminary success I have gone ahead and bought another book - available here. I have not tried out anything from this one yet, but will do soon.

This loaf calls for neither cashews nor Oreos, but they taste just as well!
