Christmas is coming – stage 1

Yep, it’s that time of year again. I’m collecting glass jars and the like for mincemeat creation later, and I’m preparing to do wonderful things with oranges and spices.

However, back to now. I made my Christmas cake on saturday. I was a bit stunned that it took 5 hours to bake, but it’s baked and ready for feeding with brandy over the next few weeks before marzipan and icing just before Christmas itself. If you want the recipe I used, it’s Delia’s; and you can find it here. I’ve used it before and found it’s a good one, and being Delia the instructions are detailed enough to make sure you have a good chance of yours being right.

Just for once, it’s nice to report something good. I’ve not posted so often lately because I didn’t want the world to believe that my life is eaten up by the stress of redundancy. It isn’t, but often I find that it’s the over-riding thing on my mind when I have time to sit and think about a blog post!
