Anniversary Dinner Tips

First, set the mood by recreating some of the elements of your wedding day:

  • Pick up some of the same flowers you had at your wedding and create a simple center piece with them.
  • Download some of your wedding music to your iPod or make a CD to play for the evening.
  • Write a personalized note telling him/her how glad you are to be on this journey together.
  • Get some candles to decorate your table and surrounding area. Everything tastes better by candle light. Avoid heavily scented candles as they can often overpower food.
  • If you have a wedding video, take some time to watch the ceremony portion…particularly your vows and that first kiss you shared in your matrimonial bliss.

Easy Sticky-Toffee Dessert For Your Anniversary Party

For the cake: Ingredients:

  • Butter, for baking dish plus 1/4 cup, melted
  • Scant 1/3 cup dark brown sugar, packed
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons self-rising flour
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons chopped, rolled dates
  • For the sauce:
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar, packed
  • Approximately 2 tablespoons unsalted butter in little blobs
  • 2 1/4 cups boiling water

Directions For the cake:  Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F and butter a 1 1/2-quart capacity baking dish. Combine the sugar with the flour in a large bowl. Pour the milk into a measuring cup, beat in the egg, vanilla and melted butter and then pour this mixture over the sugar and flour, stirring with a wooden spoon to combine. Fold in the dates then scrape into the prepared baking dish. Don’t worry if it doesn’t look very full; it will by the time it cooks. Directions For the sauce:  Sprinkle the sugar over the cake mixture and dot with butter. Pour over the boiling water (yes really!) and transfer to the oven. Set the time for 45 minutes, though you might find the dessert needs 5 or 10 minutes more. The top of the dessert should be springy and spongy when it’s cooked underneath, the butter, dark brown sugar and boiling water will have turned into a rich, sticky sauce. Serve with vanilla ice cream, creme fraiche or heavy or light cream, as you wish.
