After searching the internet I decided to use the Mary Berry’s Christmas cake recipe (http://www.goodtoknow.co.uk/recipes/284497/Mary-Berry-s-classic-Christmas-cake)
First I soaked up the fruit in sherry and left it for 3days. I also lined the tin ready for the mixture.
Next I made a cake mixture and mixed the fruit into in a separate bowl. I also pre-heated the oven at this point ready.
Once this was all mixed in I spooned the mixture into the tin and cooked for 4 and a half hours.
(I know the mixture looks gross but it looks nice once cooked haha). After the cake had cooled down I lifted it out of the tin, pierced some small holes into the cake and poured over a little bit sherry.
And that’s my Christmas cake done and dusted, ready to decorate at a later date!.
Part two coming soon, hope you enjoyed reading xxx
