but, after checking every nc I cant remember, I'm still non-the-wiser. and I cant find the hard copy either.

I have a massive bowl of fruit soaking in brandy upstairs.

would I be ok to just use my fruitcake recipe and tweak it?

Can you google a Christmas cake? Delias maybe then tweak. Fruitcakes don't always have all the spices, treacle etc a christmas cake has.

I could. I'm so annoyed. it was MIL's nan's recipe.

Can you search some of the ingredients on here if you've posted & see if you can find it? When did you post it can you remember?

Could it be on this post?

Hoow on earth did you find it?

Love back at you (just checked to see if you had messaged on FB about it, but saw your halloween costume instead - fab!)

The way I found it was to put into mn search "brandy cake lissie" and it worked! I had to try and help an old friend if I could. Gald you have been reunited with your special recipe. I am making my family christmas cake recipe this weekend too.

Thank you, I needed an excuse to wear my dress! Took ages to get the make up and hairspray off though grin

Thank you again, was so upset about it. Are you making puds too?

willitbe Fri 09-Nov-12 22:02:20

I have never made puddings as my mum has never given me her special recipe!!!!! I must go steal it off her sometime soon!

Oh, yes! I use a delia one and steam it in the slow cooker. My mums a dreadful cook so all my recipes come from PIL's side. FILs mum made great pastry, MILs mum made great cakes!
