Am I going to make this or am I going to buy one from Harrods next week?! Damn it, the former I suppose… I haven’t had Christmas for 2 years. Needless to say, it’s not so big in France. Despite living in London for 10 years, my husband never tried this British traditional Christmas cake so, since we’re hosting dinner on 24th, there’s no better time. I absolutely love this, so much so that my friends would often buy me my own individual one. Yes, a Christmas cake savage. No shame!
I’ve been struggling with what to make but I am so drawn to my own traditions this year, that nothing else will suffice. Sadly I wouldn’t get to spend Christmas with my mummy but this cake will ease some of the pain. Will me luck! Photographs will obviously follow, unless it looks hideous!
