Alison Holst’s Lemon Square

Keep Calm & Cake

——————-UPDATED, ORIGINAL POST BELOW——————-

Welcome!

I decided that since this was the most popular recipe on my blog, it was probably time it got updated with some slightly nicer photos! I’m really not that into food photography (who has time for that?! I want to taste my food, not look at it!). I know this post is only getting so many hits because I’m kind of piggy backing off Dame Alison Holst’s reputation, but I honestly mean this as a respectful tribute to her.

The other night we went around to some friends’ place for dinner, and I was bringing dessert. The impression I get from these friends, is that they eat a very healthy diet, which always makes me feel a bit guilty. So I thought, why not be a great friend and corrupt them with a sweet and sticky pud? They can’t not eat it, if I brought it…. right? Right.  Continue reading “Sticky Date Cake”
