Mum’s Christmas Cake & A Giveaway!

This Post is in collaboration with Crazy sales.

Mum's Christmas cake feature

Christmas cake never used to be high on my list of sweet treats to enjoy on Christmas day, but opinions and tastes can change over time and that’s exactly what’s happened to me, since having my 3 kidlets (must be hormones), Christmas cake is now on the priority list of must haves for Christmas and not just any Christmas cake it has to be my Mums!

Call me fussy but I’m not a fan of excessive sultanas or glace cherries in any sort of baking, I think it’s something to do with the consistency.

Mum’s Christmas cake ticks all my boxes because there’s no overdosing the cake with sultana’s or glace cherries, they’re still in there (wouldn’t be a Christmas cake without them) but there’s other good stuff in there too like dates, walnuts and apricots ! I do love a cake with a bit of texture!

Boxing Day morning is when I really enjoy Mum’s cake. We usually start with a BBQ bacon & egg brekkie and I finish it off with a nice cup of tea and a slice or 2 of my favourite Christmas cake, it’s all about balancing the savoury with some sweet!

I told Mum about a month ago I’d really love to blog her Christmas cake recipe if that was ok with her, she smiled and said “sure, but it’s not really a ‘proper’ Christmas cake, it’s just an easy boiled fruit cake’, I told her to me it’s a Christmas cake, she does make it every Christmas and only at Christmas, it has brandy, dried fruit and spices in it so that makes it a Christmas cake in my books!

We set a date on the calendar to have our (my first) Christmas cake baking day, we had a lovely day. The best bit was  getting to spend quality time with Mum (even though we were baking) we had quite a few giggles along the way. I’m now armed with a Christmas cake recipe I love and can make every year. Love you Mum xx

Coincidently around the same time we set our date the lovely people over at Crazy sales asked me to test out an Induction cooker and see what I thought. The timing couldn’t have been more perfect I knew exactly what I was going to test it on, a boiled fruit cake!

The Induction cooker arrived and a few days later so did our Christmas cake baking day!

Before we got to the baking day I wanted to give the induction cooker a good trial run, make sure we had the heating situation down pat, there would have been nothing worse than to start boiling up that delicious fruit cake and have it burn! Turns out we had absolutely nothing to worry about, it boiled the ingredients up perfectly.

Zadada and I also put it to the test frying some eggs and making up a batch of our red and green (tomato and kale) cheesy scrambled eggs.

Induction cooker

The induction cooker has a great range of temperature settings which would accommodate any type of hot plate cooking, we didn’t burn a thing. There is a whole bunch of cooking settings you can play around with on the induction cooker, I used the stir-fry setting which gave me the largest range of temperature choices and to be quite honest I think it’s the one I’ll stick with, a bit like the microwave, it has a whole range of settings available but I just stick with the one usually, heat and eat! I like things to be straight forward when it comes to using appliances just ask Zadada he’ll tell you it’s a very rare thing for me to go reading instructions thoroughly (who has time for that?). I did make an exception for this little treasure, reading the manual from front to back (3 cheers for me!! just kidding!), I think the fact that there were only 7 pages to read made the task a little more appealing.

Now you might ask why would you want an induction cooker when you already have a stove/cooktop?

Here’s my thoughts………

  • I do love my gas cooktop but there has been the odd occasion where I’ve run out of gas midway through steaming the veggies for dinner! This would solve that problem and prevent me from having a Mummy meltdown!
  • I find the gas sometimes too hot even on the lowest setting, I’ll be using the induction cooker for my chocolate ganache and salted caramel sauce from now on.
  • Hot lunches Christmas day, lots of cooks in the kitchen, running out of room on the standard stove…..problem solved again.
  • Camping not my favourite thing to do but if I was to go camping I would definitely want to take one of these with me (I’d just have to make sure I had a powered site or generator). It’s so light in weight (approx. 1kg) making it perfect for transporting.
  • Those times when it’s too hot to cook inside and you want to be outside (I don’t like lighting the BBQ solo) so I could just cook the meat in a pan on the induction cooker, win, win!

The great news for all of you is that the generous people from Crazy sales have given me another Induction Cooker to GIVE AWAY!

Serves: 25
Ingredients
  • 375g packet mixed fruit (I pick the glace cherries out and dice them up finely)
  • 1 cup diced dates
  • ½ cup diced apricots
  • ½ cup apricot jam
  • ½ cup orange juice
  • 250g butter, cubed
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 2 cups self-raising flour
  • ½ cup diced walnuts
  • 1 teaspoon mixed spice
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 tablespoon brandy
  • 3 eggs
Instructions
  1. Combine mixed fruit, diced fruit, jam, orange juice, butter and brown sugar in a large heavy based saucepan. Stir over low heat until butter melts and sugar has dissolved, increase heat, bring to boil, reduce heat, simmer 5 minutes, let stand until cold. Add combined beaten eggs and brandy, then fold in sifted dry ingredients. Grease and line a 23cm x 23cm square cake tin (you’ll end up with a cake about 4cm thick), spread mixture evenly into tin. Bake in a moderate oven for 50 minutes until cooked when tested (a skewer should just come out clean) for me and my fan- forced oven moderate worked out at 160C.
  2. Cool in tin 5 minutes then turn out onto a wire cake rack.
  3. Mum tells me this cake keeps for a good month in an airtight container in the pantry, mine has been quartered, wrapped in foil followed by cling wrap, placed in an airtight container and is frozen in the freezer (I always like to stay on the safe side with our summer temperatures).
  4. Cake size options:
  5. cm x 20cm square tin baked in a moderate oven for approx. 1.5 hours (this will give you a thicker cake).
  6. Six 7cm x 14cm mini loaf tins for a cuter option, baked in moderate oven for 30 - 35 mins.
  7. Enjoy!!

  1. Great recipe Danielle, thanks for sharing. I would love the induction cooker as it will be a great addition to our caravan lifestyle, as would the 114mm telescope from Crazy Sales. Hubby can do the cooking whilst I ponder the universe – PERFECT!!!

    Firstly , that Christmas Cake looks amazing (I LOVE Christmas cake !) Loads of fruit , nuts , spices & a good nip of brandy – just perfect !
    Wow ! That Crazy Sales website is pretty incredible – such a wide range of products – something for everyone ! I would put the “Ultrasonic Jewelry Cleaner” on my Christmas list (kids would likely go the 6 foot trampoline !)
    The induction cooktop looks awesome as well – I love the fact that is it “instant” heat – unfortunately since moving into our new home we no longer have “gas” – so induction would be the next best thing ! Love the fact it is portable as well – we do a lot of entertaining outdoors , so you could easily bring the cooking outside :)

    Firstly I love the fact that you got to enjoy a baking day with your mum and you got to make her Christmas cake for the first time. Memories like that are ones to cherish forever. And I love how a taste of something can hold so many memories of your childhood or of a certain loved one. The crazy sales website is awesome. So many things on there I love but I think if I could add anything to my Christmas from there it would be the Jamie Oliver food processor as I don’t own a food processor and my blender is nearly about to die it is that old and over worked ha ha.

    Reply
    1. Dannielle

      Thanks Melissa. It really was a special day, I’m thinking it may become a Christmas tradition for Mum and I to bake our cakes together. The Crazy Sales website is awesome, so many great things to browse through. My food processor started smoking the other day while I was making some truffles so I think after the robotic vacuum cleaner it would be next on my list too. Thanks for entering. :)

  4. oh I love this cake Dannielle! How special to be able to make it with your mum too, the photos of you both of just gorgeous! I love the idea of an extra space for cooking, we al could certainly use that! If I could choose anything from crazy sales it would have to be the robot vac, my boys have been awake for just over an hour Ana already the door is covered in toast crumbs, porridge, paper and glitter – they found the craft drawer :(

    1. Dannielle

      Thanks for your sweet words Lauren it was a very enjoyable day! Extra space for cooking is always a win in my books too.
      How good would a robotic vacuum cleaner be! I feel your pain. You think you just get on top of things with a clean and 10 minutes I’m almost back to square 1! Tonight my floor is covered in little tiny insects, they drive me nuts. Have a great week and thanks for entering :)

  5. I love a good Christmas cake recipe! We have a gas stove top here too but having an extra cooktop to cook on would be great…especially with my growing family of girls! I would buy the Digilex Juicer and blender in one or the Phillips Juicer because I’m determined to add my fruit and veg to my diet next year and I reckon a Juicer is the way to go.

    Reply
    1. Dannielle

      Me too! I like your choices of appliances Bec I have a juicer and I need to use it more, I’m thinking over the school holidays might be s good time to start again, thanks for the reminder. Have a great day ☺️

    Wow, that cake looks divine, and really captures what the festive season is about.
    I bet it tastes delish!! :)
    As for what I would choose from the CrazySales website; I’d have to opt for the electric lock security safe with LCD.
    I wish I could choose something else, but sadly that’s what I need the most..
    Recently, my husband’s car was broken into (whilst parked in our driveaway!), and the thieves stoke about $800 worth of tools. Not nice, especially when said hubby has been out of a job for the past year.
    Thieves also broke into our next door neighbour’s car, and then broke into the house across the road, taking almost the whole houseload of stuff.
    Needless to say, it has left me feeling insecure and unsafe. I would choose the safe to put our jewellery and other valuables into.
    Best wishes for a Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones xx

      I’m so sorry to hear of your theif experiences how awful for you all. Our unit was broken into when I was a little girl and ever since I’ve never slept with my window open, and I don’t think that will ever change now. I hope 2015 brings your husband the job he needs. Wishing you and your loved ones a safe and happy Christmas Michelle. Thinking of you all. Take care x

    Awesome looking cake, I’m not one for Christmas cake but it looks so good I’m tempted to give it a try. From Crazy Sales I’d also love a Robotic Vacuum but not for me for my Nan, since she is 85 and feisty enough to continue to vacuum her house even though it exhausts her.

    Wow, the trip to the Crazysales website distracted me way beyond the coffee break I had planned! There was so much on there but I just can’t go past the robotic vacuum as it would be like having a friend over to help with the housework while I got on with other things – with the bonus that I could also pick the kids up from school guilt free as my ‘friend’ kept on working! I wouldn’t do that to my human friends
