Prelude to Winter Warming Desserts

Now that I have provided some ideas for winter desserts ( previous blog) , I thought I  had better  share some suggestions of what to make for dinner before serving warm desserts like our Apple Cake with Butterscotch Brandy Sauce,  Apple & Custard Teacakes or Bread & Butter Puddings.

Here are some links to nice easy recipes.

Winter Warmers & Comfort Food

Time to pull out the woollies and warm up Brisbane! By the looks of the upcoming weather forecast it is going to be CHILLY. Brisbanites ( people from Brisbane,Queensland) don't usually do cold well, as most of the time it is warm. hot or sweltering in our city. When it does cool down, locals either curse the temperature drop or embrace the short time we have to snuggle up and eat comfort food.
Personally, I am  hoping more of the later is done because here at Cakes By Judy C - we have a cabinet full of Winter Warming treats!

We have Bread & Butter Puddings, Sticky Date Puddings ( in cabinet above) , Warm Apple Cakes with Butterscotch Brandy Sauce ( Below) & Mini Apple & Custard Teacakes (bottom pic) selling in store now.

So what does  Wikipedia say about Comfort Food??
" The term "comfort food" refers to simple, familiar food that is usually home-cooked or eaten at informal restaurants. More generally, comfort food can be defined as food that brings some form or measure of comfort, sense of well-being, or easy satisfaction, usually from being warm and filling such as a dish made with a staple food, or basically pleasing such as sweets or desserts. Comfort foods may also involve foods that have a nostalgic element either to an individual or a specific culture."
