Potted Gouda Cheese Spread

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

I have made this many times through the years and it is great to have on hand. It mellows with age, as all cheese spreads/dips/dunks/balls do. I am not a fan of the classic cheese ball. Not how a cheese ball tastes, how it looks after a few folks have had a knife swipe at it. Pretty and then immediately messy. Potted cheese presentation eliminates all that.  For this batch I simply pressed it into one of the old fashioned refrigerator pans, put a date label on it and that was it. There it sits waiting to be served.

adapted through the years, recipe most likely found in a magazine, source now forgotten, but thanked.

1 8 oz ball Gouda cheese - grated
3 T dry white wine
1 t mustard
1 dash hot pepper sauce - shake the bottle well and give it a definite dash of flavor!

Grate the cheese.

Add remaining ingredients.

Process until smooth, scrape down sides, process again if needed.

Potted Gouda Cheese Spread, delicious every where you spread it!

Smooth into your chosen container. Label and place in fridge to mellow.
To make sure this was "sealed" I used a double thickness of wax paper as a gasket.

This is delicious on crackers and in celery, this was a given.Is there a better match than cheese and crackers or bread?

But this is also wonderful to place a small dollop on a saute'd chicken breast or thigh and let it melt into a delicious sauce.

Serve with crisp and tart apple slices.

Individual balls ( about 1 Tablespoon ) of this can be rolled in toasted pecans, etc and used to dress an appetizer tray or plate. 

Enjoy!

Shoo Fly Cake

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Shoo Fly Cake, sweetened with molasses

This is a simple dessert, delicious on it's own, that can be added to. And by added to I mean, homemade applesauce or port stewed dried plums served along side, making it company fare. Or Sunday brunch or dinner for the family, we don't save everything for company around here!

I found this recipe so many years ago, and had featured it here when I first began blogging. This is one of those simple desserts that can be eaten several times a year, just like gingerbread, and you won't grow tired of it. With the end of March being so busy at work (I clocked 112 hours at payroll close) I decided to go back and remake some of the earlier offerings and take pictures this time around.

Shoo Fly Cake
adapted from a recipe found in a magazine many years ago, author unknown, but thanked many times.
350 degree oven

21/2 c flour
3/4 c sugar
1 t soda
Whisk together in a large bowl.


I have started using evaporated cane juice/organic sugar, it is darker in color, not noticeable in the finished baked goods.. 

1/2 c butter
Cut in butter until mixture looks like cornmeal. Reserve 1/3 c of this mixture and set aside. 

 

  This is so easy, add 1 c hot water to the cup, slowly pour molasses until total equals 1 1/2 cups, then stir.

 1 c hot water
1/2 c molasses
Stir together and add to the crumb mixture in the large bowl, stirring just to blend. Pour into a prepared 9 inch round baking pan.

Add 2 T brown sugar to the reserved crumb mixture, mix well. Sprinkle evenly over the top of the cake batter.

Bake 25- 30 minutes.
Serves 6-8 with whipped cream and fruit or just a small scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Enjoy!
