Trove Tuesday - Christmas Cake

The fruit is soaking and although I have covered the bowl I can smell the rum wafting from my kitchen. Tomorrow I will be baking the first of my Christmas cakes for this year.  I have a trusty recipe from a friend, I don't have my grandmother's because she didn't have one. She just put in a bit of this and a bit of that and her cakes always turned out.

For those who ar contemplating baking a cake there is plenty of advice to be found on Trove.

One of the joys of Christmas is the smell of Xmas baking, especially the cake brewing then cooking...or the pudding.

The cake has been in the oven for a couple of hours. Kitchen smells very homely.
