This is a large cake which will see you well through Christmas and beyond! It can be frozen if you can’t get through it all.
You can ‘feed’ your Christmas cake with brandy for weeks or even months before Christmas. But even a week or two is sufficient. Feeding isn’t essential if you prefer to eat your cake without alcohol.
What’s included in the Christmas Cake Kit:
One recipe card
Mixed Dried Fruit (Currants, Raisins, Sultanas, mixed chopped peel).
Organic Plain Flour or Gluten Free Flour spice mix containing organic ground nutmeg, organic ground mixed spice, and a pinch of salt.
Organic Muscovado Sugar
One orange, one lemon
Optional: Glace Cherries
All packed up in paper bags. No plastic.
You will need: 4 large eggs, 225g spreadable butter, and Brandy or Armagnac to ‘feed’ your cake (if using). 20cm round loose-based cake tin and some baking parchment.
Are you vegan? You can easily make this cake vegan by using vegan spread instead of butter. Instead of eggs you can use an egg replacer. Please get in touch if you have any questions : [email protected]
If you wish to ice your cake, we recommend this recipe. You will need glycerine and icing sugar which you can buy from our staple hill shop (not available on the website).
