Date Squares – the name might make you think of your Grandmother or potluck dinners but for me Date Squares are one of my favourite bar recipes. Dates have been cultivated since ancient times and date palms are one of the oldest fruits. Dates are also a very nutritious food as they contain iron, magnesium and calcium and are also very high in dietary fibre. Then add in oats and Date Squares have to be one of the most healthy desserts ever!
Today my new flower piping tips arrived so cupcakes were on the horizon. I was in the mood for something lemony – so lemon cupcakes were up to bat. To add to the lemon theme I decided to top them with lemon frosting as well. This recipe for Lemon Cupcakes with Lemon Frosting is very simple and sometimes the simpler the recipe the tastier. You will have all of the ingredients in your pantry except maybe the lemons, but then if you were looking at lemon recipes chances are you are in the mood for something lemony!
