    My daughter Amanda found this recipe in a old church cookbook, that I have had for years. Its the kind of cake that you want to stick your face in the pan and never come up for air.

    Recipe #91644

    The Victoria Sandwich is the quintessential English cake, conjuring up images of old England and afternoon tea. It's always been a favourite in cake baking competitions and is even used by manufacturers to test new cookers.This is one of the recipes that I use when I make my Victoria Sandwich sponge cake - the other method is posted at the end of the recipe; the ingredients are the same but the weight ratio is slightly different. This method is the original and more traditional way of weighing your ingredients, bearing in mind that the recipe is Victorian! A true Victoria Sandwich would only contain jam, usually raspberry, but as the cake became more popular and cooks became more affluent, cream was added as a delicious addition. I was always taught that caster sugar was sprinkled on top - again, icing sugar is often used nowadays. This recipe adaptation was taken from the WI website, a wonderful organisation in Great Britain for woman of all ages, backgrounds, race or creed - remember The Calendar Girls? They were all WI members! Historical note: Anna, the Duchess of Bedford (1788-1861), one of Queen Victoria's ladies-in-waiting, is credited as the creator of tea time. She invited friends to join her for an additional afternoon meal at five o'clock in her rooms. The menu centred around small cakes, bread and butter sandwiches, assorted sweets, and, of course, tea.The practice of inviting friends to come for tea in the afternoon was quickly picked up by other social hostesses. Queen Victoria adopted the new craze for afternoon tea time. By 1855, the Queen and her ladies were in formal dress for the Victorian tea time parties. This simple cake was one of the queen's favourites and was named in honour of the Queen as a mark of the cake's most devoted followers! (I used home made lemon curd for the cake in my photos, a tangy change from raspberry jam!)

    Recipe #352555

    This is a recipe I found many years ago for authentic Fig Rolls, and they are almost better than the shop bought variety, much though I love the commercial ones! Try to roll out the pastry as thinly as possible, other than that, this recipe is a breeze to make. Fig rolls are a much-loved "biscuit" from my childhood days and I make them whenever I can as I now live in France, as we cannot get them here. Fig rolls are great for a mid-morning snack with a cuppa as well as being ideal for school lunchboxes, picnics, gifts and afternoon tea. (I have posted this recipe on Zaar especially for Lalaloula, who asked about a fig roll recipe in the British forum.)

    Recipe #381104

    These little cookies, or biscuits, as we call them in the UK, are absolutely delicious - light and yet fresh with the flavour of the dried lemon verbena. Dried verbena is essential in this recipe, as opposed to fresh leaves, to keep the cookies light, fresh and crisp. They make great gifts - pack them in a little cellophane bag with an attractive ribbon, or in an antique tin; they are also wonderful when served with ice cream. (Recipe from a copy of Better Homes and Gardens that was sent to me by a Zaar friend, I have kept the measurements in cups, as originally posted.)

    Recipe #429903

    We eat hamentashen on the holiday Purim. They are triangle shaped cookies because Haman had a triangle shaped hat. My dad owns a bakery and is a baker my whole life. He makes these hamentashen every Purim. They are my favorite. When I was in college he always mailed me a box. Now I just make them myself. Hamentashen are traditionally filled with poppyseed filling or prune filling, but my Dad makes other flavors too. Cherry is my favorite, but you can also use apricot jam or use your imagination.

    These comments are from their cookbook: "At Magnolia we decided to make our cake not quite a traditional yellow cake or a traditional sponge cake, given the use of whole eggs in our recipe. We're sure you'll agree this recipe is moist, delicious and makes a beautiful layer cake or cupcakes for birthdays or any celebration. Frost with pink buttercream icing and lots of colored sprinkles as we do, and feel as though you're at your seventh birthday party all over again!"

    Recipe #139518

    While it takes slightly longer to prepare this recipe than a box mix, the resulting moist, delicious cake makes it VERY worth the little extra time. I consider this 'perfect' chocolate cake. This cake is excellent with both with Recipe #261024 and Recipe #208959 (the dark flavor version). (I use Recipe #95416 when I'm decorating the cake.) I love how the leftovers are still moist even a day or two later. (I store my loosely covered with plastic wrap.) My father adores this cake with Recipe #261024 on it. For his birthday, Father's Day etc. I make him cupcakes with the icing on them and individually wrap them. He keeps them in his freezer for when he wants "a piece of cake". He claims they are as good as when they are fresh. (Even though it isn't where I got the recipe from so I can't vouch for it, reviewers have said it is the recipe on the Hershey's cocoa can. I would recommend using their Special Dark Cocoa if possible.)

    Recipe #2496

    This chocolate cake is absolutely thee best we have ever had. It is so moist and rich, I never make anything else (unless I am short on time :) The frosting recipe included goes perfectly with this cake, but you can use any frosting you like. Try this once and you'll see why I call it "The Only Chocolate Cake Recipe You'll Ever Need"!! Adding 2/18/06: I want to note that I recently used sweetened whipped heavy cream with vanilla and it was just as fabulous as the frosting recipe listed, plus much easier. I also used hazelnut coffee in the cake and it added even more of a little extra something!

    This Bacardi rum cake is lovely and moist. I usually make it around New Years, makes a nice looking dessert for a buffet and the taste is rich and wonderful. From a magazine add, many years ago.

    Recipe #14499

    Nice little cookies that go perfectly with a good strong cup of tea.

    Recipe #57011

    I love tart lemon desserts. This is a recipe I found on Betty Crocker that looks very good.

    Recipe #266248

    These simple cookies have a delicate buttery flavor complemented by the cherry surprise in the center.

    Recipe #161704

    My daughter loves making these cookies because she can make different flavors and colors. At Christmas we make raspberry & lime which turn out red & green.

    Recipe #13745

    Delicious and soft French cookies. The recipe is from Bon Appetit Magazine (January 2000). "This cookie launched a thousand memories — and a literary masterpiece — for Marcel Proust. The group enjoys madeleines with tea, just as the narrator did in Swann’s Way." Uses a special madeleine pan (a metal mold with scallop-shaped indentations, sold at cookware stores).

    Recipe #199205

    This is the Barefoot Contessa's recipe. Ina Garten does it best! You can easily substitute ingredients in the filling. I added mini chocolate chips in place of the walnuts for half of the filling. Dried cherries and pecans are up next... possibilities are endless. Expect RAVE reviews - these are fantastic!

    Recipe #148315

    This is one version of a famous cake that originated in Austria and is modelled after the Mozartkugeln chocolate marzipan truffles. This is an elegant, elaborate cake that takes lots of time and some degree of skill to prepare, but is well worth the extra effort.Translated & adapted from "Kochen & Geniessen" magazine, directly from the German. If you are serving this to adults and want even more Mozartkugeln flavor -lightly brush the cooled cake layers with some Mozart Liqueur before stacking. In Germany, marzipan is often sold unsweetened in the baking aisle, in which case, you will need to add powdered sugar to it (which will absorb into the marzipan as you knead it). In the US, marzipan is often available already sweetened, in which case you can omit the powdered sugar, or add some to taste.

    Recipe #36227

    Delicious! Almond butter is my Pesach discovery this year. We don't use matzah meal (gebrocks), so are always searching for quick, easy & delicious cookie recipes. This one mixes up in seconds and tastes almost like peanut-butter "thumbprint" cookies - with just a dab of raspberry jam / jelly or whatever you have on hand.

    perfect for rosh hashanah for a sweet year, from today's NY times.

    Recipe #139300

    These are a nice addition to your holiday desserts. I put vanilla frosting on them sometimes.

    Recipe #46112

    A beautiful cupcake for Christmas -- or Valentine's Day. The cake has become almost traditional for the upcoming season and now here is an individual-sized serving to highlight a dessert tray. The recipe came from a book of cupcake recipes and decorating ideas. I'm sorry to say I know neither the name of the book nor the author but am grateful to have gotten such a great recipe! Note that the recipe for a suggested frosting is included at the end of the recipe, but any white frosting of your choice may be used. Edited to add: The recipe comes from the book "Hey There, Cupcake!" by Clare Crespo. It contains lots of decorating ideas.
