Pineapple and date loaf

So the dates and the pineapples are no more!

Another really simple recipe and an excuse to make some cute little loaves.

I did not add sugar and dates and pineapple are sweet enough.


  • 440 gram can pineapple chunks
  • 2 cup pitted dates
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 125 gram butter
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 cup self-raising flour


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Lightly grease an 8-hole mini loaf pan.
  2. Drain the pineapple, reserving the syrup. Add water to the syrup to make it up to 1 cup of liquid.
  3. Place the pineapple, dates, syrup and water mixture, sugar and butter into a pan. Bring the mixture to the boil and simmer for 2-3 minutes. Set the mixture aside to cool.
  4. Whisk the eggs into the pineapple mixture then mix in the flour. Spoon the mixture into the prepared loaf pans.
  5. Bake the loaves in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.
