this is a very old traditional recipe. it has a sweet and sour taste and is still enjoyed by many south africans. it was usually served after a sunday lunch. it can be served with custard or without as it is quite a moist pudding. serve hot.
this is the portuguese version of a dunking cookie. they are delicious, buttery cookies. originally from sao miguel in the azores, my avô (grandpa) on my father's side was a baker for many years in montreal. this was his recipe.
raisins and spice. when i want fruit cake but can't wait the month to ripen one, this is my choice. most children don't care for this cake, most adults do. no icing. cooling time not included. boiling and baking time combined.
