Whisky & Ginger Glutenfree Christmas Cake (Dairyfree Eggfree Vegan)

This Whisky & Ginger Glutenfree Christmas Cake (Dairyfree Eggfree Vegan) is so simple to make.  Just fold together ready made mincemeat, flour and some optional extras before baking, cooling and covering with icing or sparkly snow! 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

Last Minute Whisky & Ginger Mincemeat (Citrusfree, NutFree & Vegan)

Last Minute Whisky & Ginger Mincemeat (Citrusfree, NutFree & Vegan)

For those of us who have to avoid some or all citrus fruits, Christmas can be an interesting time of year.  (I challenge you to find a mince pie that is void of candied peel)  But add to that mulitple allergies AND a dislike of brandy and to be honest most festive treats are out of bounds.  Even if you scour the freefrom aisles!   This Last Minute Whisky & Ginger Mincemeat is allergen free, vegan friendly and takes just 20minutes to prepare.  Sticky, sweet, sour and with a spicy kick from the ginger ale its packed full of festive flavours making it a great alternative to the traditional mincemeat. (Dairyfree, Eggfree, Vegan, Soyfree, Glutenfree, Nutfree)

Mini Dark Chocolate Cakes with Mango & Ginger ‘Jam’

These cakes are dark, rich and fluffy.  Not too bitter but not overwhelmingly sweet with a hint of warmth from the ginger in the jam rather than an all out ginger flavour.  I made these with my trusty mini-tray bake tray from Lakeland – it […]
