It’s that cake time of year again.
Not that it’s not cake time all year round for me, but now I have the excuse to make my favourite kind. For some people, this is late in the day to be making Christmas cake. They make theirs weeks in advance. Thing is, mine’s gluten free, and doesn’t keep quite as well as a traditional one, despite the lavish quantities of alcohol used in its construction. So it has to be made nearer to Christmas.
I’ve posted the recipe before; you’ll find it here. It’s a pretty damn fine cake, even if it is GF. Make it with regular flour and I think you’d be pleased with the result. And I do have an ulterior motive. I get to eat most of it myself, since no one else around here is quite as big a fan of rich fruit cake! The Husband will, ahem, force himself to lick the bowl afterwards, but he’ll have had enough after a couple of slices. I will be a happy muncher until the last crumb.
So it’s probably just as well Christmas only comes once a year…
