It’s a long weekend here in Melbourne and it’s also officially winter! (Brrrrrrrr)
As you take some time out to catch up the first half of the year, now is also the perfect chance to catch up on some home-baking, soup-making, slow-cooking and casseroling.
All the classic recipes that we never seem to have time for during our busy work days.
Here is a simple but special nut loaf recipe from my Nan. It looks a little different to the original but it tastes just as good filled with dates and walnuts. It’s even better freshly served with butter.
Dust off the apron, turn on the oven and get baking! #throwbackrecipes
