Cake… check. Pudding… check.

I wish there was a release-aroma button on your browser, because I can tell you, my kitchen smells GOOD today! :D

Sweet Pea helped me make the Christmas cake and Christmas Pudding. I use Mary Berry’s fantastic cake recipe. I have made this quite a few times now and it has never failed me yet. If you’d like to try it, the recipe can be found here. I do love the task of feeding the cake with brandy and will be trying to restrict myself to only one feed a day between now and marzipanning :D

My mother-in-law makes a fabulous pud, which is very light and really just what you want after a great big Christmas roast. She got the recipe from her mother, but doesn’t know where it originates. It is, amazingly, fat-free, and contains no flour. This is my first time making it, so the proof will of course be in both the proverbial and actual pudding, but I am assured that it is failsafe! If it’s delicious I might even put the recipe on here next year ;)

  1. Yum – that cake looks delicious! As for Christmas pudding :sick: I personally can’t stand the stuff, but it’s lovely that you’re using a family recipe and I hope it works out – it seems you can turn your hand to anything, talented lady!
