Worried you’ve the Christmas baking a bit late this year? Not to worry – you still have time with our Last Minute Christmas Cake recipe…an easy, simple recipe with few ingredients: this cake has all the flavour of a traditional well-matured Christmas cake, yet can be made just a day or so before cutting. The secret is to use a jar of really good mincemeat – either homemade or the best you can find as the matured fruit and nut mixture will be plump, moist and full of spices. The cake top can be left plain, scattered with coarse sugar or brushed with melted apricot jam then decorated with nuts.
