In the love-it-or-hate-it category for most people is fruit cake, a staple of Christmas food. As a child, I hated it. As an adult, I like it a lot, especially if it’s homemade and has plenty of alcohol baked in. In other words, I love the kind my mother always made.
I’ve never made the stuff, myself. A few days ago I spied a video with recipe for fruit cake that looked easy and boozy, and decided it’s about time I tried making some. That is on the agenda for today after soaking the fruit overnight in about 100 ml of golden rum. It doesn’t look too hard to make a loaf, and I’ll report back on how it tastes at a later time.
Meanwhile, the dogs (well, two of them, anyway) posed for photos in front of the Christmas tree last night.
