Traditionally a Christmas cake is baked 4-6 weeks before December 25 but not all of us enjoy baking and for those of us we can thankfully rely on the professionals.
Baking a Christmas cake to some is a family tradition that many bakers enjoy, a ritual started weeks in advance where the cake is baked, drenched in brandy, wrapped and stored ready for that special day in December.
If you have a recipe that has been handed down for generations, that you use each year, how wonderful, I’d love to taste a piece of your Christmas cake. For those without a special recipe or looking for a different flavour I have included a few recipe links below.
