An easy No Egg Gluten Free Christmas Cake that seems excellent each time. No creaming, beating!
After being confronted with the fact that I will have to begin serious about Christmas timber, home decorations, meals, and presents reasonably quickly, I decided to get going with my first festive custom – the Christmas cake.
In reality, I often find myself making one essential cake, one other smaller model for my Kid.
I’ve even been identified to make a further one to eat instantly.
When must you make a Christmas cake?
Traditional fruit Christmas cake tastes at its very best if it is allowed to mature earlier than you eat it.
This enables the flavours to meld collectively deliciously. Throughout this time, you must also feed the cake with a tablespoon of rum/whisky/brandy (or my private favourites – cherry brandy and/or amaretto) as soon as per week or so. This helps to construct and intensify the flavour of the cake and can guarantee it is superbly moist.
You can begin this course by baking two or three months upfront – however, who needs to start baking for Christmas when the September sunshine remains blazing!
I feel early November is ideal, as we’re only beginning to feel a little bit Christmassy, and I know I am going to be capable of giving the cake at the very least four or five feedings earlier than I enhance it.

No soaking of fruit, sugar & butter creaming, beat in flour, and so on.
Many of the work is completed by effervescent issues up in a pan (into the pan goes butter, sugar (I like combined dried fruit with cranberries), glace cherries, orange zest and juice, lemon zest and cherry brandy)
