It’s that time of year when those who are making their own Christmas cake acquire their own bodyweight in dried fruit’ cherries, nuts and various other scrummy things.
We haven’t made own since the millenium but this year effort is being made!
I may do 99% of the cooking in this house but the Christmas cake has
never been my job. For the first time though D has helpers! This is both
a good and a bad thing as the cast changed half way through from lack
of interest! Conclusion – don’t bother asking a teenager to help cook a
cake, they just don’t have the staying power. What you need is a super
enthusiastic 9 year old.
So, last night the fruit was left to soak in brandy and the cake
itself is now being mixed. I’ll pop back and add another piccy when it’s
Are you making a cake this year?
