Date Nut Bread- December 22

Date Nut Bread is a traditional dish eaten in Great Britain, Australia and New Zealand.

The first recipes published fordate nut bread are from the 1920s, but it is known that bread with fruits has been baked hundreds of years earlier.

The date nut bread has a slightly sweet taste, so it is especially suitable for neutral-flavor spreads like cheese or butter, or sweet like jam, chocolate and peanut butter.


A recipe for nuts and dates bread:


1/2 cup pitted dates, coarsely chopped

3/4 cup boiling / very hot water

1/4 cups plain flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg (or cinnamon)

1/4 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature

1/2 cup light brown sugar

1/4 cup sugar

1 large egg

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 cup chopped pecans (or walnuts), plus 5-8 pecan halves

How to make: 

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a deep elongated 9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pan slightly and place the bottom baking paper.  

Soak the dates in very hot / boiling water in a bowl. Let it stand for at least 20 minutes. Then drain the water (leave the dates).   

In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. Put on the side.   

In another bowl of electric mixer (or manual mixer), mix the butter and sugar cups. Add the must and vanilla extract. Gradually combine the flour mixture. Add the dates and nuts. Mix.   

Transfer the batter to a prepared pan. Sprinkle up nuts.  

Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out almost clean.  

  Remove the pan from the oven to cool for 10 minutes. Then remove the bread from the pan and place to cool completely.  


French Toast Day- November 28

The French toast is fried bread in an egg batter, which can be prepared from salty or sweet and eaten with various additives such as whipped cream, cheese, fruit, ice cream, chocolate, butter, honey and more.

What's fun with this toast is that it does not have a special recipe and you can try it on a different way every time until you find out what recipe is best for you. To mix the fried bread you can add milk, orange juice, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and more. The additions can also be varied. The French toast is a popular breakfast or dinner and can be prepared simply from what you have at home at the moment (provided you have the basic ingredients: bread and egg).

It is not known who invented the dish, but there is documentation that it existed in Europe already in the Middle Ages.

There is a claim that it was originally called "German toast" but during World War I, because the atmosphere in the United States was anti-German, changed its name to "Tost French."

There is also a story that the French toast was invented by an American man at a roadside inn near Albany in New York in 1724 whose name was Joseph French.

No matter where the french toast comes from, the important thing is that it is tasty, easy to prepare and can be eaten both sweet and salty and add to it anything you want.
