And here’s the Christmas hat-trick! I promise that I won’t mention the C-word again until December! But, I really wanted to post this now in case anybody is looking for a good vegan Christmas cake recipe. You’ll need to bake one in the next week if you want to feed it three times before Christmas day (and the more Brandy the better!)
I found the recipe at The Hungry Vegan and followed it to the letter. The bake filled my flat with a sweet spicy smell for an entire afternoon – it took absolutely all of my willpower not to devour the beauty when I took it out of the oven. I did a Delia and gave the cake a little press to make sure it would spring back – and it looked just like her cake on the Waitrose advert!
Next week: mince pies (and it will be December by then so no doubt I’ll pop some photos on Skinny Latte).
