I'am writing this post with a lot of excitement and happiness. Reason? Have a look around. Do you see any changes? Yes, you are right, my little space got a makeover. And I'am super happy with it.
Coming to the recipe... Few days back I had tried Sukaina's recipe called Creamy Date Pots. It was so good that I ended up devouring most of it. The only ingredient in the recipe that I don't usually buy was Date Syrup (Dhibs). I've heard of date syrup before. I remember my Moothamma (Mom's big sister) telling me that having a spoon of date syrup is good for health and something about iron content. But other than that, I had no idea what to do with it.
So I asked my fellow bloggers at Fooderati and also browsed through Pinterest. I love the community of bloggers at FIA and how quickly they come out to help each other. Couple of them suggested to use date syrup in cakes. I also had very ripe bananas that were just about to spoil. So I thought why not make banana bread using date syrup? I've always wanted to try making banana bread and felt this was the right opportunity.
After doing some more browsing, I decided on this recipe. I had almost everything in stock except sour cream. I substituted it with yoghurt and also replaced applesauce with date syrup. Oh, and I skipped chocolates too. Only because I didn't have any.

2 cups all purpose flour
At one hour, draw a toothpick or a sharp knife into the center of the loaf to check if it is done. It should come out fairly clean - if not, bake for an additional 5 to 10 minutes until done.
