Welcome back to my Kitchen!!! And here at “All About Me B & B”, whilst practicing social distancing I thought I would jump into my Kitchen with this recipe.
Why not indulge in some ‘comfort’ food. Another recipe from my childhood days which I loved cooking for my dad – he had a real ‘sweet tooth’.
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon plain flour
2 cups milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup chopped pitted dates
2 egg yolks (keep whites)
1/2 cup extra sugar
prepared pastry case
Did you know, dates are fruits of the date palm tree which have existed since prehistoric times and are believed to have been cultivated as early as 8,000 years ago. Native to the Middle East, there are over 100 different varieties of date palm trees.
So grab your prepared pastry case or make your own and fill it with the delicious cream mixture!!!
