Dates and blue cheese are a match made in heaven. I love fresh dates stuffed with a soft blue cheese. Here, however, the blue cheese acts as a spread and is divine, and the hint of fresh ginger is a spicy surprise. This loaf is also delicious sliced and toasted.
- Preheat an oven to 170C. Line a loaf tin with baking paper.
- Place the dates, butter, brown sugar and water into a medium-sized saucepan. Bring to the boil for 2 minutes then turn off. Stir through the ginger then allow the mixture to cool.
- Add the flour and eggs, mixing well. Pour the batter into your loaf tin and into the oven for 50 minutes. Cool in the tin before serving.
- Slice to serve with either blue cheese or butter.
