Happy New Year

My good old Evelyn Rose cook book has joined me at the table today over coffee. She has one of the best Jewish Cookbooks I've seen as its packed through with traditional dishes for every occassion.

I'll be baking my usual Honey Cake and Honey Crackle for Rosh Hashanna.

Here's my Honey Crackle recipe:


4oz butter
6fl oz honey
1 egg
6oz plain flour
1 1/2 tsps baking powder
1/4 tsp barcarb of soda
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ginger
1/4 nutmeg
vanilla essence
4 tbsp shredded coconut

Cream together the butter and honey, then gradually beat in the egg. Sift all the other dry ingredients, then add to the honey/butter mixture. Flavour with a few drops of vanilla essence. Stir in 4 tbsp grated coconut. Pour the mixture into a tin and bake for 45 min (180deg)

Remove from teh tin carefully and glaze:

6 tbsp melted butter
6 tbsp double cream
6 tbsp grated coconut

Grill for a few minutes.


Happy New Year to all friends and family. xx
