Does anyone have a favourite recipe for Christmas cake. I’m thinking it’s coming up to the time to make it and I’m looking for some new ideas.

We usually are traveling for Christmas so I don’t normally make a Christmas cake however we do make mince pies which I should probably start soon!

I also have Thanksgiving to think about.

I’m thinking about trying something like this for Thanksgiving.

That cake sounds delicious…
For Christmas we are very conventional here in the UK - a rich fruit cake covered in a layer of marzipan and topped with royal icing and all the trimmings of the season.
I also love stollen and panettone.

My SIL has invited us to be with them this year, so an alcoholic Christmas cake is out (although since I’m 11 months sober and still struggling sometimes the idea of not having loads of spare brandy is somewhat of a relief!). They always have those vanilla sponges. Last year it was a huge dome of a sponge which was decorated like an igloo smile

Does anyone drink eggnog? I believe you can non-alcoholic kinds too.

I’m getting excited thinking about all the holiday treats!

I have to admit I’m not a big fan of marzipan! But if someone offers cake with it on it, I wouldn’t say no!!!

I’ve honestly never tried eggnog. It’s not really something that’s sold here. Actually thinking about it, I don’t actually know what it is past a drink!!!

I do do the most amazing gooey garlic cheese bread. It’s cut into diamonds beforehand and when you pull them out it’s soaked in garlicy-cheese madness.

It’s awesome smile

Ha!
Lindylo, did you find a recipe for your Christmas cake? Maybe I will try to make one this year too.

I don’t bake Christmas cakes myself, but I do help my sister each year prepare the Christmas meal. However, I do think Christmas cake shouldn’t be too taxing. I think flavouring it with alcohol is definitely the way to go. And I assume you need to store it for a week or two once it has been baked. Good luck!
