I found this recipe for Christmas Brownies on the BBC site; my daughter made some yesterday - really good. We didn't have any cranberries in the cupboard so she used sultanas

Passion Cake

Ingredients
10 oz Plain Flour
2 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
6 oz soft light brown sugar
2 oz chopped walnuts
1 ripe banana, mashed
3 Eggs,beaten
8 oz grated Carrots
6 oz Soya or Sunflower oil

Icing
3 oz Butter, softened
3 oz Cream Cheese
6 oz Icing Sugar
1/2 tsp Vanilla Essence

Grease and line two 8" sandwich tins Set oven to 350F, 180C, Gas 4

Sift Flour, Baking powder and Bicarb together and mix in the remaining ingredients; beat well.

I use a food processor with a fine grater attachment to grate the carrots and mash the banana. You can also use the food processor to beat the eggs into the carrot/banana mix.

Divide between tins. Bake for 30-40 minutes.

Icing: Beat ingredients together until fluffy; sandwich and ice cake. You can increase the icing ingredients to 4:4:8. Make sure the butter is soft otherwise you end up with small lumps of butter in the cheese/sugar mix.

As an experiment, last weekend I made up the mixture and filled 24 large cup cake cases (2" diameter) cooked for 15 to 18 minutes. The icing covered them all (no "filling"). Lovely!

My daughter made a parsnip and maple syrup cake on Tuesday and, much to everyone's surprise given the main ingredient, it was delicious! :D

The passed 24th of June, here in Catalonia we celebrated a special day called Saint Joan’s (John’s) eve.

It is tradition to gather together, throw firecrackers, light bonfires and eat a special Catalan cake for the occasion called “Coca” of Saint Joan to celebrate the summer solstice! :dance:

There are other kinds of “coca” such as the “coca de crema” or “coca de llardons” but the “coca de Sant Joan” is the best known. And as hnorwood proposed me, I’d like to share its recipe with you! :mrgreen:


Coca de Sant Joan

Difficulty: Middle

Preparation time: Long, as we have to let the dough stand 2-3 hours.

Ingredients:

- Brioche dough (ratio for 500 g Flour)
- 1 Egg
- 50 g Pine nuts
- Sugar
- Anise
- Candied fruit (melon, pumpkin, cherry, orange)


Image

Image

- Before starting to knead the brioche, let it stand for 10 min.

- Normally, these kinds of “coques” are oval, but you can make it square if you wish.


Image

- Knead it well and put it on the baking tray over a baking paper.

- Decorate the “coca” with candied fruit (press them on it without fear or when the dough will ferment, they will easily fall)


Image

- Let it stand 2 or 3 hours (during the winter, more) in a dry place without airstream.

- After a few hours the dough will have increased threefold. It is perfect.


Image

- Beat the egg and paint the “coca” carefully.

- Distribute the pine nuts and the sugar abundantly.


Image

- Preheat the oven between 180-200º C and leave the “coca” during 12-15 minutes. Watch it carefully. It can easily burn out and every oven is a world.

- If you want it to have a better colour, savour, and aroma, you can spray a drizzle of anise over it as a final touch once removed from the oven.

- Let it cool a bit and the “coca” will be ready! :mrgreen:
“Bon profit!”

That looks delicious but could you use real or dried fruit? Can't do candied fruit.

Looks yummy Mixa! Although, I was wondering the same thing as Sister J. Candied fruit gives me fruit cake flashbacks. :?
