Classic Christmas Cake
This classic Christmas cake is one from UK celebrity chef Mary Berry. She has been in the limelight of cooking and baking shows for decades. Most recently, she’s been on The Great British Bake Off, which achieved some international fame – you may know her as the sweet, elderly judge from that show.
This cake is the epitome of a classic British Christmas cake, from the raisins and sultanas running through the dense sponge to the use of apricot jam to stick marzipan and icing to the outer layer of the cake.
To get the best texture possible for the almonds in this cake, we would recommend purchasing your own uncooked almonds, and then blanching them yourself. We offer premium almonds sure to be ideal for a cake like this one – simply boil for two minutes, submerge in an ice bath, and they’re ready to use!
Salted Caramel Christmas Cake
Salted caramel is something that’ has increased in popularity over recent years, This cake offers a spectacular twist by creating the flavour with a combination of dulce de leche, black treacle, and toffee. giving you a complex, rich, and wonderfully profound Christmas cake that’s very hard to say no to.
There are a lot of nuts in this recipe, including hazelnuts, pecan nuts, and flaked almonds. To be sure that your cake has the best texture and flavor possible, we would certainly recommend securing your own supply of premium nuts.
We offer some premium hazelnuts to be bought in bulk, kilogram bags. This will help you to reduce the cost of the overall cake that you’re making, while also ensuring that your finished product is as tasty as possible – there’s nothing quite like premium nuts when compared to the cheaper options you might find in a supermarket.
Cypriot Christmas Cake
Making Christmas cakes has been a tradition in Greece and Cyprus for many years. As Cyprus was, once upon a time, a British colony. During that time, a number of British traditions became part of the culture of the island, including plentiful Christmas cake.
This cake has some pieces of candied eggplant in it, which is rare for any cake. Especially a Christmas cake.
We adore the use of dried strawberries. They contain some wonderful flavours, and are sweet without being too unhealthy. Our bulk bag of dried strawberries is wonderful, and would be for this cake – they’re dried slowly, creating a sweet, delicate flavor and texture that combines to result in a bright, rounded final effect.
