Wonderful Christmas Cake Recipe
Mary Berry's Victorian Christmas Cake
Oh Wow, you bake your own Christmascake Maggie. Lots of work but oh so delicious. I remember when I worked in England more than 50 years ago we had that and I loved it. Here in Holland we don't have that cake and tradition. I know we all have a mess when we do our baking. Have a nice day and I bet your house will smell soooo good.
We are approaching days in which our kitchen will be at full capacity and, it is one of those moments, in which knowing some simple recipe that solves a Christmas dessert or breakfast is received with open arms. Yes, actually. There are certain sweets with a very classic appearance that attract my attention. It is a sweet that can remind us a lot of the classic Cake aux Fruits , but its ingredients and finish differ a little from this. Although it is true that they keep a certain similarity. Genoa Cake as it is mainly called in the United Kingdom, is a variant of the Pandolce that originated in the 16th century in Genoa as a Christmas cake. The difference between the Genoa Cake and Pandolce lies in some of its ingredients such as pine nuts, in addition to the fact that the second is a dough and not a sponge cake, which is the version we will make today.
