Marathoning

Don’t Forget to enter my giveaway!

(Australians only sorriiiiie!)

Ok… now I can continue my post 🙂


I just coined the word.

Jokes, everyone uses it, in fact there is no red squiggly line under it, but I’d like to believe I was one of the first. Because I use it so much now you know? imagination truly is a gift.

Anyways, so you all should be proud of me, because your small not-so-little baker girl is marathoning. That’s right, I have signed up for… one, two, three…. 5 different marathons! I know right??? I can’t even believe myself!

Date Cake Turned Cookie

I love it when two completely different categories of sweet food items come together – cake batter ice cream, apple pie cookies, fudgy brownie cake – the list is truly endless.

So when I came across these sticky date cookies in my very reliable source of Woman’s Day, I was ecstatic. I love sticky date cake, especially the one from Gourmet Pizza Kitchen – You give me that cake, some caramel sauce and some vanilla ice cream and you will literally send me into a trance. You’ll send my brother out of this world, as seen by his love of the homemade sticky date pudding I made on his birthday last year 🙂

In order to make these cookies truly reminiscent of the traditional pudding cake, you do need the make the simple and delicious caramel icing – but of course, if you read my blog you would know, of my family’s ‘cut back sugar’ campaign so that did  not happen 😦

What did happen though (after a LOT of adapting I have to add) was a  deliciously soft and chewy cookie quite similar to the caramel drizzled one found at the Cookie Man in their indulgent range 🙂

212It had a lot of deep and dark sweetness due to the brown sugar and golden syrup combination which matched the sweetness of the dates to perfection without overdoing it – team that with oats and melted butter and Voila! – You have a similar to Anzac Cookie style sticky date cake inside a cookie 🙂

Blacks Dots In Yellow Haze

What else could it be but lemons and poppyseeds?

There have been many a cake and muffin but when I chanced upon this recipe of cookies, I had to make them. For many reasons too.

3. The recipe was fast and easy and due to the morning tea-with-light-cookie habit at my house, it would be perfect =)
