Valentine's Day was a busy one at Perry Lane, although they usually are. We celebrated with a few seasonal, themed additions. Some were published in the Good Living Magazine - 09/02/2010. Strawberry and Rosewater Jam, Champagne Poached Rhubarb and Sri Lankan Love Cakes could be enjoyed as well as the full summer menu.
Here's the Love Cake recipe for you to try at home.
Sri Lankan Love Cakes
185g Cashews, chopped
300g Dried Pear, chopped
1 Lemon, zest
1/4tsp Cinnamon, ground
Melt butter with semolina in the oven. In a separate bowl cream together yolks and sugar. Combine other ingredients in another bowl, stir in butter and semolina. Fold in yolks. Spoon mixture into piping bag, pipe into greased individual moulds. Bake at 160℃ for 24 minutes, rotate tray halfway. Cool.
