Sheva Berachot, Bridal Shower, or Mother’s Day Themed Berry Filled Heart Cake

Bridal Shower Cake, Sheva Berachot Cake, The Jewish Hostess

This is a wonderful and easy romantic berry cake that any level baker can whip up like a pro. I am hosting a Sheva Berachot next week and this cake is tops on my dessert menu.  Save this in your desserts folder for any heart shaped themed dessert such as Mother’s Day, a Bridal Shower, and Sheva Berachot. I would also cut out a dreidel shape for Hanukka, or triangle for Purim. Why not? The fillings are unlimited too! Use a tree shape for Tu bishvat and mound with new fruits and voila! You’ve got your own unique dessert creation! Have fun and send me your fruit filled cakes- I would LOVE to see what you’ve come up with!

p.s.- This cake is also a perfect pre-Passover excuse to start baking up the Hametz ingredients in the kitchen…

Many thanks to  Emanuelle my Jewish Hostess Instagram follower from London (!) for sharing this fabulous recipe. Check out her blog www.manusmenu.blogspot.com.

Ingredients

  • 11/2 cups superfine sugar
  • 11/2 cups softened butter (margarine/dairy free butter)
  • 4 eggs beaten
  • 11/2 cups self raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp milk soya milk
  • for filling:
  • 1 cup butter/dairy free butter
  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • strawberry jam
  • (To make icing mix together butter and icing sugar in a food processor)
  • red berries of your choice

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 180 Degrees C or 350 Degrees F.
  2. Mix all cake ingredients together. (Make sure eggs are beaten before hand and butter is beaten before hand). Make sure the mixture is smooth and there are no lumps.
  3. Grease two round 8 inch cake trays.
  4. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes or until golden brown.
  5. While the cakes are in the oven, take an A4 piece of paper and fold it in half.
  6. Draw half of a heart on one side of the fold.
  7. Cut out the drawn half heart shape while the paper is still folded. You should come out with a heart shape.
  8. When the cakes have baked and cooled, CAREFULLY remove them from their cake trays and place them on a large flat surface.
  9. Place the heart stencil on the top side of one of the cakes. Carefully, with a sharp knife, cut around the shape. Make sure the cake is fully cooled. (You might want to keep your icing in the refrigerator until needed).
  10. Evenly spread a medium layer of icing on the other piece of cake.
  11. Spread jam on top of the icing, but leave centre (where heart will be) without jam.
  12. Gently and carefully place the cut-out-heart piece of cake (with a large spatula and help from a friend if possible!) on top of the other piece.
  13. Make sure it is placed evenly (and the heart actually looks like a heart!)
  14. Pour the fresh red berries in to the heart shaped 'hole'.
  15. Sprinkle with icing sugar. Enjoy!

Homemade Sugary Cinnamon Churros for Heavenly Indulgence

Homemade Sugary Cinnamon Churros for Heavenly Indulgence

10 Comments 11 February 2013

Hearty Churros are the  traditional Spanish dessert developed centuries ago by Spanish shepherds. Since fresh baked goods were impossible to come by high up in the mountainous countryside, these tummy filling cake-like, cylindrical, carb-filled snacks were created so that they could easily cook in a pan over an open fire. 

In Spain, churros are still eaten as a mouthwatering breakfast, an all day snack, and dessert. Nowadays churros makers are filling their churros with chocolate, fruits, caramel, and oh so yummy  dulce de leche…. Of course, the churros trend was too good to be hidden away as a Spanish secret treat!

As this easy to make delight quickly spread all around the world, Alexis Cohen, a premier baker in the Syrian Jewish community has sweetly shared her amazing recipe with us.  Alexis was even chosen to bake Paris Hilton’s 30th birthday bash cake…..Check out Alexis’s website HERE.

Enjoy your churros today! Bikini season is so, so far away!!

p.s. Try making churros for your Purim mishloach manot. Add in a jar of Dulce de Leche and your Purim gift will be remembered for years to come!

British Themed Bridal Shower by Daniella Salem

No Comments 07 January 2013

What a stunning bridal shower! Thanks for sending in these photos, Nathalie! Im loving how your “mum” used the patten of the British flag to line the fabulous cupcakes, cake pops, and desserts! Love the umbrella invitation, and fish and chips too. The colors happen to be such a bright and gorgeous contrast. I’m sure it looked “smashing”!

Marlene

Hi Marlene,

My mum, Daniella Salem, made me the most amazing shower when I was getting married last year. The theme was British because I grew up there. The invitation was an umbrella because it always rains there. Everything was red, white and blue and she even made fish and chips to stick with the theme! But the most spectacular part was the dessert table which was covered completely in flowers with white desserts only. It was the most magnificent shower! She used the center flower strip for a gorgeous table later in the week. No one does it like my mum :) Best,

Nathalie (Salem) Galapo

Pure Indulgence! Bridal Shower Flair by Kim Kushner and Shirley Serure

No Comments 27 June 2012

Dear Hostesses, Enjoy these fresh themes for this couture styled bridal shower created by the ever talented Kim Kushner and Shirley Serure. These girls have an entertaining arsenal of ideas and I’m so glad that they shared them with us! Thanks girls! Marlene

“There’s nothing like a house party. Especially when it comes to bridal showers.  No matter the shape or size, a party will always feel most intimate when it’s at home. Yes, hosting a party in your home is probably going to be more work than holding it elsewhere, but when the party is in your home, it really reflects who you are- your taste, your style. And isn’t home where the heart is, after all? A few weeks ago I hosted a bridal shower for my future sister-in-law. It was a wonderful brunch for about 30 wonderful women. I decided not to go the usual bagels and lox route, instead I served lots of beautiful fresh salads , and an Asian salmon. The food seemed to go over very well, but the dessert table really stole the show.  In my opinion, it’s all in the details. You can have the most mouth-watering desserts, but if they aren’t set up in a beautiful way, you simply are not doing them justice. To display my desserts, I pulled out all the square or rectangular glass vases that I had saved. Colorful fruit in glass square vases contrasted the sharp white meringues and chocolate drizzled macaroons. Little towers made up of brownies, hello dolly squares and biscotti lined my kitchen island. And of course, a fun cake was the center of attention.  The cake made by Alexandra Zohn a pastry Chef and owner of Three Tablespoons, became the table’s centerpiece as I elevated it by placing it up top a large square glass vase. Displaying your desserts on different levels truly creates a showcase, rather than having all the desserts placed flat out on the table. The little touches become the most touching: hot pink personalized napkins, a glass beverage server (you can find them online) filled with water that’s been flavored with lemon and orange slices and some fresh mint leaves, glasses of Mimosas garnished with a frozen raspberry….  And, of course, every great party needs a great party favor- in this case, personalized bottles of Rose (I forgot to hand them out, but that’s besides the point!). The truth of the matter is, that it can’t only look good, but it all has got to taste as good as it looks. And, I can proudly say that the ladies went crazy for my miniature peanut butter cups, my fig biscotti, and my mother-in-law’s divine carrot cake.  I’ve never seen such drop-dead gorgeous women stand around my apartment scarfing down cookies and cake-and nothing makes me happier!

Grandma Joyce Wolf put a lot of detailed touches to this sugar sweet event for the first “Joyce” granddaughter in the family. I’m especially loving the height variations on the shades of rosy pink dessert table, the hanging ballet slippers from the chandelier, the lacy pink placemats peeking through the clear glass trays, the individual fruit cups, the personalized tulle wrapped cookies, the melt in your mouth cotton candy cones, the chocolate multi colored drizzled strawberries, and the melange of pink candies in an array of glass containers. What did I leave out??? Comment below! Marlene

“Hi Marlene,

For my engagement, the theme was white and black with silver accents. (you can’t really tell from just the dessert table!) It Couldn’t have been done without the help of party planner Yvette Hanan she really is amazing at what she does. As for desserts, bakers Shirley Mamiye and Mari Gindi made individual brownies, napoleons, cupcakes, tiramisu, sugar cookies and more… The marzipan desserts featured in this pic were all custom ordered  and brought in by my family from Panama.

A beautiful flower and dessert showcase. Flat glass squares can be bought at Ikea or custom made to fit your table top needs. They they be used over and over in so many different types of party themes because they serve the purpose of display without distracting from the decorative and colorful food, dessert, and floral array. Thanks, Esther!

“Hi Marlene,

Here is a dessert bar I made for a Bar Mitzvah recently. I baked the desserts, arranged the flowers and used glass canisters and sheets to display the desserts. Enjoy,

“My sister loved  feathers, so we tried to incorporate the colors of the invitation, which was pink and black, and make it an elegant night out for the ladies who came. We draped the tables with black table cloth and pink organza on top. On the dessert table we created the illusion of floating plates. We stacked square mirror chargers over glass cups to look like it was floating and flooded the table with rose petals. On the table we also put two black vases which we draped with pink beads and topped with feathers. Nellie Esses”

 S’mores Tart or Bars- An Easy Dessert for all of the Jewish Holidays

by Shirley Dana

S’mores don’t have to end with the summer. Here is an amazing recipe for gooey, melt-in-your mouth s’mores bars that are truly appropriate all year round after any type of meal. I’ve made this recipe in a pyrex and cut the bars into squares after they cool. Last week, I even made it in a tart pan, and drizzled chocolate on top for a “fancy” s’mores tart. Enjoy this incredibly easy, irresistible dessert!

S’mores Bars or Tart:

  • makes 24 bars (9”x13” in pyrex, or one 10” tart)
  • ½ cup of butter, room temperature or use Earth Balance to make it pareve
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 ½ cup chocolate chips melted
  • 1 cups marshmallow fluff (not melted marshmallows)
  • 1 bag mini marshmallows

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light. Beat in egg and vanilla. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder and salt. Add to butter mixture and mix at a low speed until combined.
  3. Divide dough in half and press half of dough into an even layer on the bottom of the prepared pan. Pour melted chocolate over dough. Place in the fridge until the melted chocolate becomes hard enough to be able spread the fluff on top of it in an even layer without them mixing together. Sprinkle with a few handfuls of mini marshmallows. Crumble the remaining dough in pebble-size pieces on top of the marshmallows.
  4. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until the dough is lightly browned, and the marshmallows are golden and puffed. Cool completely before cutting into bars, or removing from tart pan.
  5. Optional- toast sliced almonds, sprinkle the tart with the almonds,, and then drizzle melted chocolate on top!!!

fried breaded fish, mini spinach cupcakes, mini salmon with teryaki sauce over couscous, 
sambousak, grilled french green beans with peppers, and mini challi rolls.

Tu Bishvat Coconut Almond Date Truffles

1 Comment 16 January 2012

Coconut Date Truffles

I decided to add a twist to the Almond Date Truffle recipe that I posted  last week. This Shabbat  afternoon I kept telling myself that they are totally natural and have no sugar at ALL….. they were so good with a cup of tea…. I wont tell you how many of these delicious treats I ate, but I can assure you that I will be in the Spin room at the gym bright and early tomorrow morning!!!

They are so easy to make. The whole recipe took about 12 minutes to put together and of course needs no baking. Great for Rosh Hashanah, Tu Bishvat, Passover, and all year round!! Gluten Free!!!

Kosher Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 cup pitted dried dates
  • 1 cup chopped  almonds
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon Amaretto (optional)
  • 1/4 cup of unsweetened coconut

Directions for this Kosher Recipe

  1. Grind almonds in a food processor until finely chopped. Transfer to a baking sheet and toast in oven for 5 to 7 minutes, until fragrant  and slightly darker.
  2. Place the dates, almonds cinnamon, and honey in a food processor.  Pulse the processor until the mixture comes together to form a ball.
  3. Form cherry-sized balls out of the mixture and roll them in  coconut to coat.  Enjoy them right away or store them in the fridge for later!

Healthy Shabbat Blueberry Crumble

8 Comments 10 October 2011

My cousin Sharon sent me this great  recipe a couple of months ago, and I decided to dig it up from the archives because so many of The Jewish Hostess readers loved it.Its so perfect for anyone looking for a last minute low sugar, healthy dessert for Shabbat. Serve with any flavor parve ice cream or Tofutti.

p.s. Have a great dish to share? send it over!- marlene@thejewishhostess.com .

Hi Marlene,

I made this for Shabbat two weeks in a row because everyone loves it so much, not so sweet and not so much oil.  This recipe is small (a 9X9 baking pan) so I made it larger, doubling the recipe exactly and it worked well in a 3 quart pyrex.  It gets cut into squares and served in a platter so the pyrex works well.

Again, best of luck with your website, you are doing an awesome job!!

Have a fabulous summer,

Sharon H.
