Creole Cake image

This is one of those recipes that has been around for a long, long time. I remember one of my Aunt's making this recipe when I was a little girl. It brings back memories. The cake gets moister and more delicious after sitting for 24 hours.

Creole Scallop Cakes image

Experimenting in the kitchen is a passion of mine...a passion I hope to pass along to my daughter. One day I had some scallops and decided to concoct a scallop cake instead of a crab cake. This scrumptious appetizer can be prepared ahead of time. The cakes and aioli sauce can both be made the day before, and you can cook the cakes just before serving. Not only does this simplify last-minute prep, it allows the flavors to blend, making the dish even more yummy. My family and friends love my specialty scallop cakes.-Iisha Leftrdige-Brooks, Sacramento, California

Basic Creole Sauce image

I cook a big batch of this sauce and keep in the freezer for when I need to pull together a quick dinner party or supper for my family. Just reheat and add a combination of shrimp, sausage, or chicken and serve over hot rice. Add in a combination of the optional ingredients to make it your own. You will have a meal fit for company.

Creole Crab Cakes image

We've an abundance of crabs in coastal Louisiana. I know no one who has ever turned one of these down. Chill time not included. NOTE: For all the years that I've made these crab cakes, just recently I've used cracker crumbs in place of the breadcrumbs in the recipe and for the exterior coating and think that I might perfer that even more so.

Categories     Fruit

Yield Makes 8 small or 3 large cakes

Number Of Ingredients 25

2 cups chopped dried apricots
2 cups dried cranberries or cherries
2 cups chopped dried pineapple
2 cups chopped pitted prunes
2 cups yellow raisins
2 cups Thompson raisins
1 cup candied orange peel
1 cup chopped dried figs
1 cup rum
1 cup brandy
1 cup port
1 cup Cointreau
1 cup water
2 teaspoons bitters
1 (3-inch) cinnamon stick
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon fresh ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups unsalted butter, softened
3 cups Demerara sugar
8 large eggs, beaten
3 cups self-rising flour
2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  • Combine fruit in a large pot. Stir in rum, brandy, port, Cointreau, water and bitters. Add cinnamon stick, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, allspice and salt. Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat and simmer gently for 10 minutes. Remove fruit mixture to large bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let sit for five days, tossing it once a day. Prepare cake pans. This is a large amount of cake and will fill eight gift- sized loaf pans, four 8-inch square pans or any combination of other sizes. Butter pans and line with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 275 degrees F. Beat together butter and sugar until well mixed. Gradually beat in eggs a little at a time, adding some of the flour if the mixture starts to curdle. Stir in remaining flour. Add fruit mixture with liquid to flour and egg mixture. I find it easiest to use your hands to do this. Spoon into prepared pans and smooth the surface. Loosely cover top with a double layer of parchment paper. Bake for about 2 hours for small pans and up to 3 hours for large ones. Test with a wooden pick. It should come out clean although the cake will be quite moist in centre. Cool pans on rack. Unmold and wrap with foil. Leave for a few days before cutting.
