Our Christmas Cake recipe comes from the Fabulous Baker Brothers second book. We recommend making this Christmas Cake recipe in October. At the first opportunity weigh all the fruit into a bowl and pour over the brandy, cover and leave to soak for a day. When the cake has cooled feed it with brandy and wrap it tightly with baking paper. Store in an airtight tin and every week or so turn the cake upside down, skewer the base several times and pour about 2 teaspoons of brandy onto it, let it soak in, then return the cake to the paper and store in the tin.
Try icing this with our Royal Icing Recipe. We love to eat this Christmas Cake recipe with a slice of stichelton cheese. If you’ve left it too late to bake your own or need a gift for a friend why not buy our Christmas Cake.
