Figs Jam (Mrabbah Al-teen)

An easy and quick homemade jam to make this season!
It famous in Lebanon with roasted sesame seeds. It makes a wonderful treat with bicuits or arabic bread and butter 🙂 Sometimes served topped with walnuts.

I got you covered!

Yesterday I tried the Pound Cake Mix from Domo Lebanon. It took 5 minutes to prepare and the smell was simply mouthwatering. I just can’t wait for tomorrow to cut it with my loved ones 🙂

Christmas Cake in the making!

Well this recipe can’t get easier!
I tried last week the recipe posted on Al Wadi Al Akhdar Website and it turned excellent! So I went and did another batch yesterday.

I also tried the homemade marzipan recipe at home!I got it from a baking recipe book I’ve bought a couple of years ago.
It was super easy and delicious.

Recipe Trials on a Rainy Day!

Well on a rainy weekend I mostly spend my time at home!

Nothing much to do, so why not get the cooking rolling. I’ve been wanting to try a couple of cookie recipes that might work for Christmas.

I tried one on Saturday and one today; check them out. Do you like them?

Mature Christmas Cake

Every Christmas my mother prepares what she calls the “Christmas Cake”, as she always used to narrate; it’s an English cake that’s been there for hundreds of years. Prepared weeks ahead and served for guests during the season.

I checked a couple of books and recipe websites maybe I find the secrets of this cake, and here what I found:
o    This fruitcake recipe is over 100 years old.
o    It’s a rich, dark and a moist fruit cake.
o    It requires 2 days to make.
o    It requires 3 weeks to ripen; where the cake is moistened with orange juice or rum for almost 3 to 4 weeks. *the rum helps preserve it and ripen it.
o    It’s usually decorated with marzipan (almond base) and a thick sugary frosting.
o    It’s usually prepared by end of November, but some even prepare it in October.

As interesting as it can be, I found a good recipe on one of the Lebanese Brands “Recipe Section” that I’ll be trying out this year >> Dark Fruit Cake!
I found the picture on BBC Good Foods website, you can check their recipe via this link >> Make & Mature Christmas Cake.

Will let you know how it goes 😉
