You might say Christmas cake now? Christmas is still four months away.Yes I say now so it has time to mature into the cake it should be.
I share with you today a very old recipe which has been passed down through 4 generations.
Soak fruit in Brandy for 2 days or more.
Cream butter, brown Sugar and Castor sugar – well.
Add eggs one at a time mixing in well.
Sift flour,bicarbonate of Soda, salt and mixed spice.
Add dry to butter/sugar mix a little at a time, alternating with fruit mix.
