Try a Christmas cake recipe made with wonderful fruits, spices and sherry, from Bettys – the famous Harrogate bakers.
And if you’re going to the trouble of making your own cake, then why not try making homemade marzipan as well?
Make the cake up to 3 months in advance, and feed it with a few spoonfuls of sherry, brandy or rum every week. Make sure it’s well wrapped in baking paper and tin foil, then placed in an airtight tin, and keep it somewhere dark and cool.
