Cinnamon Raisin and Date Bread and French Toast!

Cinnamon Raisin and Date BreadThis bread was found on Lydia Holton’s blog (click to view recipe). I did have to change the serving size to 1 loaf and then I substituted the milk and butter for almond milk and soy butter. This bread is really tasty and I used it to make some fantastic French toast. 

Lydia’s recipe ended up tasting great, I highly recommend it. I did have to make it dairy-free, but that did not hurt the recipe. The bread is great for breakfast meals too, such as French toast.
