extra-special xmas cakes

no, no, no you haven't just stumbled across a foodie blog! This week it's all about Xmas prep, and I thought I'd show you all another of our little traditions. While I'm a bit late with this, today before it gets too hot, I'm making these little extra-special Xmas cakes - they are full of glace fruit, nuts, dried fruit and very little flour. When cut into very thin slices they look like the stained glass windows in a church!
I have just poured the final essential 'ingredient' over them and oiled them. When they are cool I'll wrap them & pop them in the fridge. These little cakes keep really well and and you will find just a little goes a long way. Oh, and they make lovely extra-special gifts too!
I use an old recipe I found  years ago in some magazine, if you want a copy just email me and I'll forward it to you. While it's not exactly the same recipe as mine, I've also attached a link to Annabelle's version here.



  1. Yum - I didn't make a Christmas cake this year. These look delicious.
