Already wondering what you’re going to do with the leftover Christmas pudding or Christmas cake? This could be worth trying. Might even be alternative on the day itself.
Traditionally Christmas cakes and puddings were made months before Christmas. I don’t ever seem to be that organised and intend to do mine tomorrow. It made me realise that it’s also time to hunt out some Christmas recipes for you. I’m surprised this one is titled ‘Traditional Christmas Cake’ as the old, traditional, recipes don’t have butter and definitely don’t have chocolate. It’s a much more modern version.
Long ago Mum gave me the recipe for homemade lemon butter, it was always a favourite when the lemon tree was producing lots of fruit. Nowadays it’s a lot easier to just buy a jar at the supermarket – doesn’t taste as good though. So for this recipe if you’ve got the time, and the lemons, you can use homemade, but if not go with the bought variety.
