I know, I know it’s only November, but it’s never too early to start thinking about your Christmas cake!! At least if you get that done early, it’s one job ticked off the list. I did quite a bit of research last year to find a really great gluten and sugar free Christmas cake and this one came out tops for me. Everyone who sampled it agreed that you wouldn’t notice the difference from a more ‘traditional’ recipe.
Admittedly I did soak my dried fruit in brandy first; and fed the finished cake with a bit more brandy a few times; and I did cover it in marzipan and icing, so it doesn’t really count as a truly healthy recipe, but hey, if you can’t indulge a little at Christmas, when can you?? Just make sure you share it around! If you did want to make a truly healthy version you could either leave it plain or decorate it with some nuts and/or cherries, maybe with a little honey glazing, or you could make your own marzipan and sugar free (stevia) icing if you have the time.
