“Dark beer adds a unique twist to this recipe. You may substitute raisins or currants for the dates if you wish.”

This bread was dark, dense, and delicious! I used the oil, and cut the cardamom to 1 teaspoon, which still left plenty of cardamom taste--I can't imagine using the full tablespoon! This keeps great in the fridge. You will love it!

This was delicious! I used strong black coffee instead of the beer and currants instead of the dates. I used the same amount of cardamom as cinnamon. I love cardamom, but 1 tablespoon would be too much; I am thinking that is a misprint and 1 teaspoon would be about right. I also had to used dried ginger because I was out of fresh, but it turned out great. This is not quite a banana bread and not quite ginger bread, but it was a real hit with us.
