Little Chocolate Fudgy Balls December 5, 2016

fudge

These are lovely but, maybe too rich for the kiddies.

They would make nice Christmas gifts if placed in small, pretty cellophane bags with a ribbon around them 😉

 

Ingredients

 

120g walnuts

220g stoned dates

1 tsp vanilla extract

3 Tbsp cocoa powder

A good pinch

100g chocolate chips (optional)

 

Method

 

Blend all ingredients together in a blender.

Place in a plastic bag and squish well together, then break small pieces off and roll into small balls and put into mini paper cupcake cases.

Filed under: Apples,Cider Vinegar,Cloves,Dates,Sugar,Toasted Cheese — dogsmum @ 10:28 pm

This is delicious with cheese. I especially like it in a toasted cheese sandwich 😉

Ingredients

450g cooking apples

75g dates, chopped

200ml cider vinegar

3 cloves

75g dark brown soft sugar

Method

Place the apples, peeled, cored and roughly chopped, in a pan with the dates, cloves, cider vinegar and sugar.

Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for about 25 minutes until the apples are soft and the liquid has almost completely reduced.

Everyone loves a good banana loaf, so make a date with this classic.

This is also good toasted.

 

Ingredients

2 cups (300g) self raising flour

1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

125g stoned dates, chopped

1/2 cup (115g) castor sugar

1 cup (250ml) milk

2 eggs

1 cup over ripe mashed banana

 

Method

Preheat oven to 175C, gas 4.

Line a 2lb loaf tin.

Sift the flour, soda and nutmeg into a large bowl.

Stir in the dates and sugar.

Combine the milk, eggs and banana in a separate bowl, then fold (do not beat it) into the date mixtureuntil well combines.

Pour into the loaf tin.

Bake for 50-55 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the loaf comes out clean.

Cool for in the tin for 10 minutes before turning out onto a rack to cool.
