Don’t shoot the messenger but Christmas is coming and fast! If you want to enjoy a traditional Christmas Cake with your loved ones this year, you need to start the preparations soon! We are talking really soon, this weekend would be ideal!
The reason we need to make it so far in advance is because it needs time to sit, be fed with alcohol and mature. This cake is easy to make and just requires you to soak the fruit in brandy the night before and then mix and bake in the morning. By morning the raisins, currents and cranberries will have plumped up adding an extra tasty touch
