Rich christmas cake recipe details
|230 g||mixed peel|
|230 g||prunes, pitted, chopped|
|450 g||brown sugar|
|120 g||rice flour|
|2 tbsp||strong freshly brewed coffee|
InstructionsClean and prepare all fruit. Chop the larger fruit into small pieces and then combine all fruit, except prunes, in a bowl. Add brandy and sherry. Cover tightly and leave to marinate overnight.
Prepare 3 cake tins (different in size) and grease with butter. Line with two layers of brown paper cut to fit and to project above the sides of the tin by about 5 cm. Inside the brown paper, fit a layer of grease proof paper, projecting similarly. Butter the inside of the grease proof paper.
Cream together the butter and sugar well. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing each in thoroughly. Add prunes and mixed peel.
Sift flours together and add to the butter cream mixture. Add the marinated fruit and coffee and mix until well combined.
Preheat oven to 150°C.
Put the mixture into the prepared tins and flaten the surfaces. Bake for 1 hour, then reduce the heat to 135°C and bake for a further 2 1/4 hours.
Take the cake from the oven and fold the extra paper layers over the top of the cake, tin and all, while still hot in at least 4 layers of newspaper. Place on a rack and leave overnight. The next day, remove from the tin, peel off the paper and store the cakes in an airtight tin.
