Thanks for the timely reminder!!

I want to make one this year too, but of course would've forgotten about that until it was too late...yet again!!.

It is a promise I made to myself to once serve my family a Chrimbo Pudding with brandybutter . It will be something new for all of us. But since everyone loves my mincemeat and the pies, I presume they'll love such a cake too!!


off I go perusing my cookbooks
I use the recipe from my Delia Smith book.

Makes a really nice cake, the only difference when I make it is that I also soak the fruit for a good 24/48 hours (depending on how dry they were) in English tea as well as the brandy. I also just use mixed fruit bought in the U.K. and add a few nuts. Mixing it up and baking this afternoon. Fingers crossed everyone!
