With everything going on with the family, this has been my first opportunity to make the cake.
I bought the necessary ingredients 2 weeks ago. I have only made a Christmas cake twice before, both times I was on maternity leave..... so a long time ago! I was so pleased I managed to find the recipe again. On my midnight shop last night I bought some fresh eggs, the packaging made me laugh.... love it. Will I be Big and British after all the eating at this celebration?
Another important ingredient of course is the spirit.... this recipe calls for 4 tablespoons of Sherry...... and of course a glass for the cook!
The final mixture looks delicious. Yummm.
Only problem.... I no longer have a cake tin big enough to take the whole mixture. Never thought about that. However hope the solution works.
It cooking now, doesn't it take a long time? I hope it will be OK. Time will tell.
