A version of this post appeared back in 2010 originally. I have repeated it here with a few tweaks!
My Grandmother spotted this Christmas Cake recipe in a copy of Woman Magazine, and since then both my Mum and I have used it.
The photograph is of the actual page from the magazine, which does look in rather a sorry state! The actual date is gleaned from a book review on the reverse of the recipe – 1983!
Since Mum has passed away I have not made a Christmas Cake. I have either bought a small one or we have not had one. It is one of the tasks that I cannot quite bring myself to do yet. Mum used to come over and we would make them together. I don’t know what we would talk about, just those random chats we would have about a variety of topics. One of which would be a prompt to write my Christmas cards!
Do you make a Christmas cake?
