We bought a 15 cm spring form for the pork pie and both agreed although it was late we would start...

    Need an advice about fruitcake ingredients

    When I was a kid I love having a fruit cake on Christmas day. It is not a complete celebration without it. What got me intrigued and addicted is that strange taste which I think could be because of the alcohol ingredient. I am planning to make one this Christmas but I am not quite sure if that...

    OK, this is a once a year epic, you have been warned. It is best made around October half term and stored until Christmas. It is stunningly moist from the apple juice, but very heavy and simply wonderful for a hungry cyclist/mountaineer. We have omitted from the orginal recipe what we don't...
