Prune & Armagnac Christmas Cake - 1.2 kg Round
For many, Christmas Cake is too sweet, moreso for menfolk, and too stodgy especially for sunny Australia. Mine is anything but sweet. Australian fruits and ginger are   chopped then marinated in nothing other than Brandy for a week; this, along with Armagnac and Prunes ensures my Cake is luscious and savoury - almost tart. That is not to say Crooked Creek's Cake is not rich - up there with Fortnum & Mason and Harrods. No less than 25 ingredients jostle with each other to give layers of taste as you indulge - what celebrating should be all about.  There is no other Cake like Christmas Cake, steeped in tradition. So its worth doing it authentically, for example we use the best grade spices which I blend myself - being Nutmeg, Cinnamon, Ginger, Clove, Allspice, Coriander and Mace. This Cake is fruit-driven and is best simply served with Tea, a Tipple or with Cheese.  Grandma shared her baking prowess - traditional methods and values holding me in good stead ever since.                              
Enjoy your Festivities, Zoe Wall
