    Thought I’d get adventurous and try making an Xmas cake. Wow, I hope it tastes as good as it looks!
    I’ve loosely based it on the recipe above
    Recipe as follows:
    750g mixed fruit
    2 cups of iced coffee (Dare)
    1/2 cup of rum
    1 & 1/2 cups of sr flour
    2 sachets of chia latte
    1 pk of glazed cherries
    1/2 cup of flaked almonds
    Followed method to make however had to let the cake sit and cool down for 5 hrs due to having run out the door to go to work. I don’t think this has affected the cake
    Will post follow up of taste test on Xmas day lol.
    Cake was dense and moist with a slight spicey rum flavour. Went well with custard, cream and or ice cream.
    Really impressed at how tasty and easy this recipe is ?
