The Christmas Cake is made!

The Christmas cake is made.   Now it gets ocassional doses of brandy to make it moist.

Some people make jokes about Christmas cake, but in my family, it's not Christmas without Christmas cake. (not so much for those who married in though - hahahaha),  I think I could do without any other Christmas food, also long as we had the cake.

This is a picture of me making Christmas cake ... not this year ... I really don't document this every year ... but I had these pictures in my scrapbook so I scanned them for you.  The cake is just ready to go in the oven.

It's the family recipe ... my mother has a copy in her mother's handwriting, and I got her to give me a copy in hers.   It's not the version I bake from ... it's just for posterity. 

And this will be my reward for being custodian of the Christmas cake recipe.   mmm..mmm..mmm......


  1. haha, I love your comment..."I really don't document this every year". The cake looks good enough to eat!!! Wish I was coming over to your house this Christmas. Actually I have an Aunty living in Ontario, maybe I could send her on my behalf :o)

  2. Oh me too - I love Christmas cake. Such a shame we only get to indulge our passion once a year! Leigh
