This simple rustic loaf is full of flavour from the dates and walnuts. It only needs 5 minutes kneading and one rise.
To test the bread for doneness: Insert the tip of a Thermapen digital food thermometer into the centre. If it reads 100°C / 210°F then it’s done. If not, return to the oven for a further 5 minutes. Alternatively, tap the bottom of the bread. If it’s cooked it will sound hollow, if not bake for a further 5 minutes and test again.
