No eggs, no wheat but still tastes great. The brown sugar and dates caramelised.
I found this recipe on that doesn’t use eggs.

1 c chopped dates
2/3 c brown sugar or even less
60 g dairy free spread or butter

1 c boiling water
1 and 3/4 c gluten-free flour

1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp bicarb of soda

2 tsp vanilla essence

You could also add chopped walnuts and ginger if you're feeling spicy.

Put dates and sugar in bowl then add margarine. Pour in boiling water, stirring until marg has melted. Add sifted flour then BP and bicarb soda, mixing well. Add vanilla. Bake in greased loaf tin for 45 mins at 180C.
