You may have noticed I like to multi-task in the kitchen.  Especially where it comes to recipes and this Christmas Cake is no exception!  The main ingredient is a jar of my Last Minute Whisky & Ginger Mincemeat which is freefrom dairy, eggs, gluten, soy & nuts – but you can use any suitable jar of shop bought too!  My mincemeat contains whiskey, ginger ale, bramley apple chunks, dates and cranberries.

 

To the cake batter I also added some chopped glace cherries and dark chocolate chunks but you can also add chopped nuts,  pears or dried blueberries.  Actually a nice brown sugar crust & sprinkling of pistachios would be really good.  The cake is dense but a lot lighter than a traditional fruit cake.  That said, it is still sturdy enough for a marzipan and/or fondant layer complete with decorations.  Glutarama have a great nutfree marzipan recipe and if you are ok with nuts & eggs, Kate from Glutenfree Alchemist has some beautiful flavoured marzipans you can make at home!  For this cake a light dusting of sparkly snow was all it really needed!

Usually we are at home for Christmas but this year we are packing up & shipping out to the in-laws for a few days.  I am planning to make one of these and one of my Glutenfree, Vegan Black Forest Cake to take with us, plus a few other goodies!  I might even share them!  This recipe makes one 6 inch round cake which should make 8 slices.  As for decorations, I am planning to soak the cake in a simple syrup, a coat of boiled jam and a thin layer of fondant.  The syrup will stop the cake from drying out and the jam should help stick the fondant on!  I just picked up some cute Christmas bath toys in Dunelm which will look really cute on a layer of white fondant.

 

Whatever dietary requirements you are catering for this Christmas don’t forget to check out #FreeFromChristmas on social media as the freefromgang has got you covered!

 

All that there is left to say is everyone here at The Peachicks’ Bakery wishes you a Merry Christmas & hopes that 2018 brings you health & happiness!  It is possible there will be more recipes before 2018 is upon us but just incase Christmas chaos descends and there isn’t see you next year and enjoy the recipe!

Recipe Notes

* Find recipe for Whisky & Ginger Mincemeat here.

You can either use the quantity of any ready made up mincemeat if you have it

OR ...

Use half the quantities listed in the ingredients for the mincemeat and add straight to the bowl.  This may mean you don't need to add all or some of the 100ml apple juice.  Just enough to make a soft cake batter.
