National Date Nut Bread Day

It’s National Date Nut Bread Day! Date nut bread is the perfect dish for the holiday season. It is delicious, healthy, and easy to make!

The first date nut bread recipe appeared in print in 1939, but dates are one of the world's oldest fruits. Date seeds have been found in archaeology excavations of sub-tropical areas around the world. Historians believe that the ancient Moors brought the date to Spain and later introduced it to America. 

Dates are notorious for their high sugar content, so it is no surprise that most date nut bread recipes do not call for any additional sweeteners. To celebrate National Date Nut Bread Day, try your hand at baking a homemade loaf of this festive treat! Don't forget to top it off with a little cream cheese frosting!

  • December is National Fruit Cake Month & National Egg Nog Month
