Homemade Coffee Date Rye Bread is worth taking your time over. Enjoy it fresh and thickly sliced. A dab of butter is all it needs. The combination of sweet dates, bitter coffee and sour rye makes a great simple breakfast.
One of my guilty pleasures at the weekend is homemade bread slathered in cold, slightly salty butter. If that bread is slightly on the sweet side, I say all the better. Weekends are my time to relax the healthy eating a little. This Coffee, Date Rye Bread fits the bill perfectly. It is just the right side of sweet, with a bitter hint of coffee and a smidgen of sharpness from the rye. This loaf can wake me up any Saturday morning it pleases.
I like to enjoy my Coffee Date Rye Bread as fresh as possible and just as it is… plus that lick essential of butter. The loaf is large so there’s often a little left over for the next day. I toast a few slices on day 2, so that I can marvel at how the heat of the toaster transforms those dates into soft, squidgy nuggets of sweet goodness….
