Recipes for Christmas

 

Welcome and Merry Christmas!

It's a good time to get a head-start on your Christmas baking, especially if you are making your own Christmas cake. Because of the richness of the ingredients, the baked goods will keep quite well in the refrigerator in sealed containers. There is no need to chill the Christmas cake as this will slow the mellowing process.

We'll add more recipes as we progress with our own Christmas baking...

Christmas Cake

Christmas Cake

This is a beautiful moist cake with a heavenly aroma and rich flavours. Try to make it at least a month ahead of Christmas, so you can 'feed' it with brandy, but if you only have a couple of weeks lead-time, don't worry, it will still taste wonderful on the day! Our recipe features step by step photographs and instructions.
