Cool Weather Cake!

With a few days of cool weather predicted I realised that it was time to bake the Christmas Cake. With the oven needing to be on for over 3 hours, it was not a job for a day with heat such as we have had recently.  Using a recipe that I have been making for almost 40 years, the cake is all ready for baking. I dislike almond paste or royal icing, so I make a pattern of almonds. When baked, I'll pour brandy over the top to keep it moist and then when cool I will wrap it in a large tea towel and store it away until Christmas.
