Maximum effect. Minimum effort.
I love cooking. I really do. But usually I want to play with flavour combinations to gain the most delicious dish with the minimum amount of effort. Most of these recipes reflect this.
Granny's Date and Ginger slice
1½ cups self-raising flour
1 cup chopped dates
¾ cup chopped walnuts
185g butter, melted
1¼ cups brown sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon ground ginger
¼ cup chopped crystallised ginger
Icing sugar for dusting
Preheat oven to moderate, 180°C. Lightly grease a 20 x 30cm slice pan and line it with baking paper.
In a large bowl, combine flour, dates and walnuts. Stir in butter, sugar, egg and ginger.
Spoon into prepared pan, smoothing the top.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, until cooked when tested. Let cool in the pan. Dust with icing sugar and cut into squares.
