"For some, the best part of the Christmas dinner is the Traditional Christmas Cake. Rich with dried fruits and often flavoured with rum or brandy, Traditional Christmas Cake is a perfect ending for a festive holiday meal...."
Christmas cake. Traditional. Tasty. One bite and you can hear your arteries harden.
But, as with so many other things, I don't think a little Christmas cake will really hurt you.
Unless you drop it on your foot.
This post is mostly a recipe for Christmas Cake. And, this advice:
"...Note: Traditional Christmas Cake is best made ahead and allowed to mature before icing and decorating...."
The ingredients include a half-pound of butter, apricot jam, four ounces of brandy or dark rum (for starters), a cup of golden raisins and a cup and a half of brown sugar.
A diet food for the health-conscious this isn't.
