Bubble, Bubble toil and trouble!!!

Popped the retro Christmas apron on and started baking the first couple of Christmas cakes for the festive season.

It's rare that I go through the bottle shop before midday, but I did today!! Feels like Christmas when you are purchasing alcohol (sherry in todays case) for baking before lunch.

The boys love giving home made fruit cakes and the like to our neighbours and good friends. All cellophaned up with the Christmas ribbon and cute tag always looks good.

At Christmas time I think we all make allowances with butter and cream. Looking at the butter bubbling away i know it's a little like the kids can sometimes be ....'naughty but nice'.

Mmmm anyone doing fat free yummy things for Christmas or going the whole full cream indulgent way with all the trimmings?


  1. That looks so delicious. I am so slack I just buy mine - yours looks so good I feel like I should make one myself this year!

  2. Melissah, turned out delicious... it was actually the recipe just on the back of the Sunbeam mixed fruit box. Think it was called boiled and easy fruit cake... look out for the mixed fruit box when you are at the grocery store next. (They are at the end of the aisles at the mo.)

    Made them in some little Christmas Cup cake holders and they looked so cute and tasted great! Sometimes I would buy a cake too, depends how busy you are and if you are in the groove for baking.

  3. Louster you are on fire my friend!!! I brought the brandy a week ago to makes Nan's Christmas pudding still haven't cracked that bottle open. On the list for tomorrow!!

  4. Hey JoJo,

    Always means more doesn't it when you are stirring the recipe your Nan used to make for Christmas.

    We best make hay while the sun shines before our boys are on hols. Pat breaks up next week!
