Foolproof Christmas Cake recipe for a total beginner?

(5 Posts)

Oh and THE Delia recipe is from her Christmas collection book smile

Line your tin with double layer of grease proof or baking paper and make sure it comes up about two inches above the top of the tin. Hth!

Thanks Sybil smile Is there just the one Delia recipe? And also what do you put brown paper round? Is that like greaseproof paper or wrapping paper?

Delia's is available online and pretty foolproof.

You can use orange juice instead of alcohol in it if you prefer. My only extra tips, would be to make sure you put brown paper around the outside to prevent burning and check it before she says, because modern ovens cook more quickly than when she wrote it.

Good luck!

Does anyone have such a thing? And any tips for stopping it going tits up?

We were never a Christmas Cake family but I like the idea of making one each year. I love really moist Christmas cake but not too alcoholic tasting. If anyone has an easy, failproof recipe I would be very grateful smile
