I didn’t bake a Christmas cake last year, because I still had one left over from the marathon baking session I had at the end of 2008.
And, yes, I know it’s late in the year to be baking my Christmas cake, but what the heck – it would still have 3 odd weeks to mature. And adding double the brandy – that’s sure to help the maturing! So – baking a solar Christmas cake was on the “to do” list yesterday.

I used a fruit cake recipe (which will be in my “book”) and it turned out perfectly.
|I managed to fit 1 X round cake and 2 X “loaves” in|
the oven at the same time – one for us, one for NGirl
and a spare one for a gift.
The end result – a delicious smelling, (and tasting - the scraps from the pan which I devoured were very yummy!) moist and perfect looking fruit cake – I’m a very happy little puppy :-)
