Very dark (black) Date Loaf Recipe please.

Hi, has anyone got a recipe for this? The recipes I've found on the internet don't tell if they turn out very dark. Thanks, Lee.

lee5, for a very nice date loaf I personally recommend the second recipe at:- asp
x? id=5921

Because of the brown sugar + the dates that recipe makes a loaf with a good dark brown colour but definitely not what I would call "black" however if you can find a recipe that includes treacle + brown sugar and dates it should give you a "very dark (black) date loaf" or alternatively if you find a recipe that uses golden syrup then replace the golden syrup with treacle to get a darker result.

Hope that helps. :-))
