I made mine last week, so I know! OK, it may not have the steeping and feeding richness of a cake made weeks ago, but it sure tastes good. Taken from Nigella’s Feast Recipe book – it’s the Easy Action Christmas Cake:
I substitute dried apricots for part of the dried fruit and use apricot jam instead of the chestnut puree.
I don’t decorate my Christmas cake, quite frankly it doesn’t need anything else except a strong cup of English tea!
I hope you will find the time to make this cake if you need one; the aroma it gives off while baking will get you into the Christmas mood and it’s easy too. Good luck!
