Banana Fruit Cake
Yield: 12 servings

3/4 c Butter
2 c Brown sugar
4 Eggs
2 1/2 c All-purpose flour
1 c Walnuts; chopped
3 c Candied fruit
1 c Pineapple
2 c Dates; chopped
1 tb Orange juice
1 ts Orange rind; grated
1/2 ts Orange extract
1 ts Baking powder
1 ts Baking soda
1 ts Salt
1/4 ts Ground nutmeg
1/4 ts Ground cloves
1 ts Ground cinnamon
1 1/2 c Mashed bananas

Prepare two 2 loaf pans (9" x 5") and preheat the oven to 300 F.

In a large bowl combine the fruit, dates, pineapple and walnuts. Dredge them with 1/4 cup of the flour. Sift the remaining flour together with the baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Set aside.
Cream the butter, add the sugar and beat until the mixture is light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Beat in the orange rind, orange juice and orange extract. Mash the bananas with a fork. (A food processor will tend to liquefy the bananas and this will change the texture of the cake.) Alternately stir the bananas and the flour mixture into the creamed mixture. Stir in the floured fruit and nuts.
Turn into the prepared pans and bake for 2 hours and 15 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the middle of each cake comes out clean. Cool in the pans for 20 minutes, then turn out onto racks.

Spinach & Cauliflower Cheese

1 Bunch Spinach
1 Cauliflower

Cheese Sauce
15g butter
1 tbspn plain flour
150ml milk ( I use soy milk)
50g cheese grated

Wash spinach and cauliflower. Divide cauliflower into floretsand steam spinach and cauliflower until tender. Meanwhile for the sauce, melt butter over a gentle heat, stir in the flour to make a smooth paste. Whisk in the milk and stir until thickened. Take the saucepan off the heat and stir in the grated cheese. Keep stirring until all the cheese has melted and the sauce is smooth.
Mash the spinach and the cauliflower to the desired texture, then add the cheese sauce and mix . For younger babies you can put the spinach, cauliflower and sauce in a blender and puree.

This is a great way to get kids to eat spinach and is a great remedy for constipation.
