Care to share recipes ?

Postby burien1 on Thu Dec 18, 2008 9:51 am

Would anyone care to share their cookie, candy or cake recipes ? I`m always looking for new ideas. Thanks.

Austalian Sticky Date Pudding

Postby Kathe on Thu Dec 18, 2008 10:07 am

Here is a very yummy cake that is super easy to make. Take this to a family gathering and you will be the talk for days. When I was in Australia my DIL's mom made it and I was hooked. It's called Sticky Date Pudding.

Sticky Date Pudding

Serves 8

9 oz pitted dates chopped
1 tsp baking soda
1 ½ cups boiling water
9 Tbls butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1 ¾ cups self raising flour

Place dates and soda in boiling water in pan and stand for 20 min. With electric mixer beat butter, sugar and vanilla, add eggs one at a time, and beat well. Fold through date mixture and sifted flour with a metal spoon. Bake 35 – 40 min at 350 in a pan 8 x 8 or 9 x 9 whichever you have.

Caramel Sauce
1 Cup brown sugar
1 1/3 Cup whipping cream
½ teas vanilla
4.5 tablespoons butter

Combine all ingredients and cook over med heat stirring until it just boils. Reduce heat and simmer for 2 minutes. Pierce the pudding all over and pour ½ cup of the sauce over the warm pudding. Serve with remaining sauce with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

Austalian Pavlova

Postby Kathe on Thu Dec 18, 2008 10:09 am

Another family favorite, again very simple to make and you can't stop eating it.

Pavlova

Meringue
8 egg whites
1.6 cups fine white sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 tsp apple cider vinegar
large pinch of salt
2 tsp corn starch

Filling
Whipping cream and lots of fruit (I use fresh strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, kiwi and passion fruit)

Line a large baking dish with parchment paper and mark a 9 inch circle as a guide. Preheat over to 350 F. In a large dry bowl, beat egg whites on high speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar and beat continuously until mixture is firm and glossy and sugar has dissolved. Beat in vanilla, then the vinegar, then the salt. Sift the corn starch and fold into mixture. Using a spatula, spread the mixture over the circle. Straighten the sides, making them higher than the center. Bake for 10 min in center of over. Reduce temp to 235 F. Bake for 1 hour. Remove from oven and leave to cool completely. Whip cream and chill.

Just before serving, top with whipped cream, decorate with various fruits and drizzle passion fruit pulp.

Be sure if you take either of the above to a gathering to print out the recipe to take as well or you will be sending it out for days afterwards. Much easier just to take it with you. :lol:

Grape Salad

2 lb grapes (seedless red or green)
2 cups sour cream
2 cups cream cheese
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup sugar

Mix all of the above together and put in a 9X13 pan.
Top with 2 cups of nuts (pecans or your choice) and 1 cup brown sugar.

I dont know why they call this extremely delicious desert "salad." It is so good you will be shocked, and so easy, I was shocked. You simply halve the grapes, mix it with all of the other stuff, put it in a serving dish then you put the nuts on it FIRST and the brown sugar over the nuts. Serve.

I have served this a few places (its loaded with all the bad stuff that tastes so good, and it takes 10 minutes to make), and every time, EVERYONE asked for the recipe afterwards.

Thanks GodStudent !
All these sound like great recipes. Our Church has fellowship dinners all the time, so that everyone really has a chance to get to know one another. But I get tired of the same old things. I`m a great cook, but for some reason, put me near an oven and I burn myself. I do biscuits and cornbread and rolls and bread, but I don`t have alot of cookie and cake recipes. Or desserts for that matter. So thanks for the help.

YSIC.
