You’ll enjoy this gourmet delight featuring the Hermitages own secret recipe. This is a hearty 1 pound cake containing dates and walnuts, and soaked in brandy. Moist, but a little less so than our fruitcake, and tasty!
A wonderful treat for the Holidays or any time of the year. In fact, this cake is more versatile year-round than the fruitcake, and is popular as an after-dinner dessert. It is rich, so a small slice satisfies most folks. Imagine a warmed slice covered with vanilla ice cream, melting in your mouth. Your taste buds will be sublimely uplifted. You may even have an out of body experience!
Due to the well-publicized storms that have damaged the California Central Coast roadway system, we are unable to ship items from the Hermitage at this time, because of road closures. We will reopen this online shop once the roads open up and delivery trucks are able to reach us. We do not have an estimated time for this; it depends on Mother Nature and the progress of road repairs. Please check back here on a weekly basis for any updates. We thank you for your support and prayers. Since we are unable to welcome guests here during this road closure, our main source of supporting ourselves has been taken away. If you care to make a tax-deductible donation to help, your gift, large or small, would be received with gratitude and thanks.
