As we welcome the month of September, we also welcome the Busselton Running Festival happening on the 21st and 22nd of this month!

The picturesque coastal town of Busselton in WA’s south west corner will play host to the new action packed professional marathon event.

The course will feature an “Official Course Measure” to make this event eligible for state and nation level recognition in an attempt to become part of the State and Nation series. The event will also include the two person relay marathon, 5 km, 10 km as well as Kids Marathon.

Kids will cover 40 km in the eight weeks leading up to the event, and cover the remaining 2.2 km on the race day to complete the marathon.

So, if you are looking for an action packed weekend, make sure not to miss the event. Get your running shoes ready and mark your calendar with September 21st and 22nd. The Busselton Spring Running Festival promises great fun and excitement for all ages.

Recipe of the Month

The Wulura vineyard and farm nestles in countryside so pristine and beautiful you can understand the urge to bottle it.

Situated at 888 Wildwood Road, Yallingup, it is a family-owned property of 650 hectares stretching towards Geographe Bay and the spectacular Indian Ocean coast.

Wulura Farms has developed a reputation as one of the finest – and largest – wine-growing estates in the Margaret River region.

Our recipe of the month is shared to us by Jenny of Wulura. Enjoy this delightfully tasty Apple and Date Spice Cake.

APPLE AND DATE SPICE CAKE

Ingredients:

2 Apples

1 Cup of chopped pitted Dates

½ tspn Bi-Carbonate of Soda

1 cup boiling water

140ml Wulura Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 cup Caster Sugar

1 Egg

2 cups Plain Flour

1 tspn Mixed Spice or Cinnamon

 

Method:

Grease & flour a 23cm square cake tin or round cake tin.

In a bowl combine chopped apple, dates, Bi-carbonate of soda and hot water, cover & allow to cool. In a mixing bowl beat egg, sugar & Wulura Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Slowly stir in the flour & spices alternating with the apple mix. When the mix is combined and looks smooth pour into the prepared tin. Bake in a moderate oven (160 degrees Celsius) for about 1 hour. The cake is ready when pricked with a skewer & it comes out clean. Allow to stand for 5 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool.

This cake is lovely served warm with a dusting of icing sugar, cream and a Strawberry sliced.

You can also use this recipe for a muffin mix

 

SOMETHING TO DRINK

The 2010 Art Series Riesling shows concentrated freshly cut limes, jasmine and subtle sweet spice on the nose.

The palate displays ripe grapefruit, lime and musk flavours, the wine is held together by a core of natural grape acidity which is crisp and refreshing with strong lime intensity on the finish.

I am married and live on a farm near Margaret River with my wife, daughter and son. I set up The Margaret River Guide to assist people coming to Margaret River Western Australia to easily find what they are looking for. I also wanted to allow people to find activities they did not know about and to be able to openly comment on/ review businesses.
