I had meant to share this pre-Halloween, but bah. I got so busy. I didnt have my huge party this year, but I did bake a few things for special folks. One of these things was the Soul Cake. I had a recipe I THINK I shared here a few years ago, but was given this recipe and like it MUCH better than my own due to the fresh hazelnuts and the type if tea. Im a big Bergamot lover.. so naturally Earl Grey sold me on these. If anyone cares, I can put the origins and customs and etc associated with the cakes.. but I like them at certain times. My own personal stuffs.



/2 cup fresh berries
1/2 cup roughly chopped hazelnuts ( I added a few almonds as well)
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup hot strong black tea (I used a combination of ginger and Earl Grey)
1 large egg
1 tsp of nutmeg
1 tsp cardamom
1 tsp cinnamon
A few tablespoons of chopped candied ginger (optional)
pinch of salt
2 1/2 cups of self-rising flour

Combine berries, nuts and brown sugar. Add the hot tea, stir well, cover and allow to soak for an hour. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a muffin/cupcake pan.Beat the egg into your wet mixture, adding the flour in 1/2 up batches, beating well after each edition.
Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake until toothpick comes out clean (around 45 min.)
Let cool in the pan before turning out.

I looked EVERYWHERE all year to find the perfect muffin tin type thing for these. Something that I liked.. but finally found it on eBay. LOL! I got a cast iron muffin pan type thing with leaves and berries.
