Nutritional Info.

One thing I did discover while looking for these recipes, blackcurrants are more popular in Britain, Australia and New Zealand, than they are in Canada and the States. There are a couple I wouldn't mind trying myself, and I hope you find a couple there that you wouldn't mind trying.

Next week its: Cranberries.

Hi Angela,

I hope you see this comment. Coffee cakes are a name of a cake, but don't atually have coffee in them, a bit like Gingerbread isn't a bread, if you know what I mean?

Coffee cakes, generally have a crumb topping on them, made up of sugar, butter and flour/oats/nuts. I didn't look at that recipe to see if it had a topping.....

Anymore questions just ask.

I LOVE black currants! I am US born and mostly US bred but I still love 'em. I have tried to grow some and always pick a lot each year locally (SE Michigan). This site is fantastic! So far, we eat them or make preserves. I can't wait to try some of these.
Thanks for all the recipes,
Margaret

I think (but I might be wrong) that if it is called a coffee cake but has no coffee in it it must refer to the act of eating the cake with a cup of coffee, ie a cake for "coffee time" does that make sense?
