It’s time to make the Christmas cake!

Time to make the Christmas cake? Yes, it really is! Christmas cakes aren’t like ordinary cakes – they need a good long time to mature. Make them in September or October, and, over the following weeks, as the nights draw in and the air becomes thick with excitement, the spices and dried fruits slowly release and intermingle their full flavours. You’ll also need to ‘feed’ a traditional Christmas cake with brandy, rum or similar, to give a rich moistness – and this too is best done over an extended period of time.
