As you may know I enjoy a bake or two. To get organised this year I decided having seen Christmas cake advertised on television that we should make ours nice and early.
We therefore went to my favourite place (the supermarket) to procure the ingredients and then set up our baking station back st the ranch.
We followed A delis recipe – loosely. I decided the cake needed far more cherries and candied peel than advised not to mention a touch more treacle. That said it came out of the oven 4 hours later (!) – not brilliant for an impatient baker such as myself – looking perfect.
The worst bit though – I wasn’t allowed to eat any of it.
