Like I have mentioned some times before, one of the easiest way for me to decide what to make is by searching through my pantry for an ingredient. Today, the decision landed on lemons; an item I currently have in abundance.
The decision on what to do with my favourite citrus fruit was rather split. On one hand, I have been wanting to create a recipe for a lemon cake for ages. That said, I have an inkling that in order to make a successful recipe for that specific dessert, I will have to try several times in order to get all the components right. Considering I still have plenty of the delicious zesty fruit left, I might give it a try in the upcoming days nonetheless. The other option I was contemplating, was to make a Lemon Cream Pie.
- 2 cups raw nuts (I used equal parts almonds and walnuts)
- 1 cup dates, pitted
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
- a pinch of maldon salt
