A good friend gave me this recipe, you could have a competition on guessing the ingredients of this fail proof cake and nobody would pick it. Truly one of the moistest cakes you could ever find. The top can be decorated with blanched almonds before baking, if you like.
Ideally, make this cake in November to let the flavours mellow before Christmas. It is very good with a marzipan icing.
This is a delicious alternative to traditional Christmas pudding but still is a serious and fruity dessert for the big day.
I have made these cupcakes several times. They always work out perfectly and taste amazing! I have included the ingredients and preparation for the decorations, but this makes the recipe more challenging.
This is a beautiful Swedish style ring bread which is usually served at Christmas. Not hard to make but quite elegant.
People get very impressed when they eat this, cause the biscuits get soft and "meld" together with the cream and they think it's cake and that somehow you made really thin strips of choc cake and they can never figure out how you got them to "stand up." :-) Assemble this the day before. Great for Christmas.
Believe it or not this loaf cake recipe comes from Iceland, where it is served at Christmas. You'll want to make it more often than that!
This is a simple fruit cake especially for people (like me) who are not very organised. It is quick and easy but tastes delicious.
Try something special this Christmas with this charming cake. I garnish the log with marzipan holly leaves and berries.
This is so nice for us that live down under. Who wants HOT Plum Pudding when it's so hot here?! This is special. Just for us folk that still want xmas pud, without heating the house up. Everyone loves it and asks for the recipe so often I thought I would share it with all of you. Enjoy!!
