Christmas Cake

Christmas Cake

  1. Beat butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time.
  2. Sift spice with flour and salt. Add some of the flour mixture to the fruit.
  3. Fold the remaining flour into the butter mixture. Gently fold in the fruit, lemon rind and marmalade. Then, add the sherry.
  4. Put mixture in a prepared tin (lined with grease-proof paper).
  5. Bake at 325 or less for about 1 1/2 hours, and then reduce the temperature to 275 until done.
  6. Serving Ideas: Instead of sherry, try rum.

Serve with creme anglais or with a slice of cheddar cheese, melted, on top.

This is traditionally served in Britain at Christmas.
