Would you believe that we are less than 6 weeks away from Christmas? I know the decorations have been up in the malls since the end of September but I can’t help but feel that it has snuck up on me again. So, there is only one thing to do this weekend and that is to make some Christmas cake. Why 6 weeks before you ask? Well because I believe that Christmas cake must be boozy and this leaves just enough time (and I’m cutting it a little fine here) to have a brandy soaked tea time treat by December 25th.

I can’t remember where I found this recipe but I do remember that I found it because my oven was out of action for about 3 months (over the kids birthdays I might add – I know, I don’t know how I coped) and it was absolutely necessary to find a solution to the problem.

  1. You had me at ‘boozy’ – my type of cake – easy and boozy … ;-)

  2. Christmas always sneaks up on me, as well. The last 3 months of very year just passes so quickly!! Yummy cake!! Enjoy the weekend! (I cannot leave a message on your other blog, for some or the other reason!)

    • I wonder why you can’t comment. Does it give you an error message? Looking forward to seeing you for coffee this week. Have a lovely day :) xx

  3. Looks lovely Tami, yes and easy.

    • Thank you Inge. I also love it because it only uses 250g of fruit cake mix (which is so expensive lately). I really can’t afford to make huge batches of fruit cake where I need 1kg or more of fruit :) xx

  4. Hey Tams, someone actually asked me for a Microvawe recipe, I will send them right over to look at this glorious creation!

  5. hmmmm, looks so yummy! wanted to grab and shove it to my mouth from my computer screen. will definitely try this even if it’s no longer Christmas. Thanks for sharing! :)
