Broken Date Torte

The edge of this page was just destroyed and my scanner couldn’t detect it, unfortunately. I apologize for the left side being cut off. A quick search revealed many date torte recipes, but none that quite matched. Originally I thought this was a recipe for tarts, but the use of baking powder suggests a rise … Continue reading

Butter Horns

This recipe for Butterhorns is a classic yeast cookie. They have a Danish or Swedish origin and look a bit like a crescent roll, but much smaller. If you are not confident about using yeast, I understand. I only this year have started making my pizza dough by hand and allowing it to rise – … Continue reading

Gold Cake / Sea Foam Candy

When they are too … Continue reading

Pineapple Cake

Here’s another guess at what this is, but I’m a little more confident this time. This looks like a recipe for pineapple cake, or even pineapple upside down cake if you take a little effort. A little history, of course, because that is what I do heh. The first pineapple packing house was built in … Continue reading
