Here’s one for entertaining this summer, actually it pretty good all year round. I’ve been making it since the 80s and it still tastes great and feeds a crowd.
When my children were at primary school I helped put together a cookbook as a fundraiser. The school community were asked to send in contributions and we ended up with lots of great recipes. The mother who sent this one in added the note about it being a good ‘first baking’ cake and it definitely is. It’s been made many times in my household by both the kids and me. The added bonus is that it also tastes great.
Sadly, Christmas decorations are already appearing in the shopping centres even though it’s still October. So I suppose it’s nearly time to start working out what Christmas cake and what style of pudding to make this year. I seem to make a different version every year. I’m not quite sure if this recipe qualifies as a Christmas pudding, but if you’re looking for something different it might be worth trying.
