How to make Christmas Cake

  3. Preheat the oven to 150 deg C

  7. Add the beaten eggs, almond essence and vanilla essence and mix well
  8. Add the orange / lemon peel and dried fruits, nutmeg powder and cinnamon powder and mix thoroughly
  9. Slowly add the flour and fold in well. If the mixture is too thick add a little milk
  10. Pour into a greased baking dish and bake at 150 deg C for 1 hour and put a wooden toothpick to see whether its done
  11. Remove from the oven and while hot prick with a toothpick and pour the remaining rum
  12. Just before serving, heat in MW for 1 minute and pour some more rum on the cake. Tastes delicious

My Tip:

Once the cake is done, wrap with a foil tightly and keep in a air tight container so that the cake absorbs the rum
