"Famous" Cake for a 70th Birthday
It's finally here- the cake recipe I promised you over the weekend! A couple of you were correct in guessing that it was an Italian Cream Cake. Most Italian Cream Cakes I've seen have cream cheese frosting on them, with a garnish of chopped pecans on the sides of the cake. But this recipe, incorporates the nuts into the frosting, which adds a nice texture. Having the nuts mixed in also means that the frosting doesn't have to be so perfect looking. It is much more forgiving and rustic, which…
Cake # 9: Arabian Date Cake
On Sunday night we made Arabian Date Cake. When looking for a well-reviewed English Sticky Toffee Pudding recipe I kept running across references to Arabian Date Cake. It's made family style instead of individual servings. It also can be served warm or room temperature. This is a deal breaker for me because I hate fussing around in the kitchen with dessert while everyone else is enjoying their dinner. The recipe did not disappoint. It was light and rich and delightful in every way. I haven't…

A Cheese-Worthy Recipe: Date and Cherry Nut Bread
My very, very favorite kind of bread to pair with cheese is one that’s studded with dried fruit and nuts. There’s something about the sweet-savory combination of elements in a loaf of this variety that’s versatile enough to match any type of cheese. And match it well, to boot.But so often, a good fruit and nut bread is either hard to find, or just not that great.So I figured it was about time to start making my own.
Date and walnut cake
This old-fashioned favourite is proof that you don’t need to invent new recipes in order to eat healthily. Despite being very low in fat it has a lovely light, moist texture, thanks to the dried dates, and makes a pleasant alternative to a conventional fruited cake. It’s delightfully easy to make, and keeps well too.
This dark, firm-textured bread has a hearty character. Enjoy it for breakfast or with coffee or tea, thinly sliced and topped with cream cheese and a scattering of chopped dates. It keeps well for several days.
Low Fat Date Loaf | Stay at Home Mum
This Low Fat Date Loaf is my beautiful Mum's recipe. I quite often will have a slab for breakfast in the morning (with loads of butter!). I had forgotten how totally mouth watering it is! Give it a try!
Orange Kissed Date Pecan Bread
A quick breakfast bread is a staple in most any recipe collection and household. We all grew up with a variation of a banana bread or a zucchini bread recipe that we’re fond of, and either graces our breakfast table a few times a year or at least when folks come for a visit or …

Delicious coffeecake. Similar to a blueberry buckle yet has its own unique twist. Recipe dates back to the 1920's. Fresh, frozen or canned blueberries may be used, but be sure to drain them first.
