Christmas Cake

Never too late to get one of these brewing. I make them a week or so before the big day and then 'feed' the cake with brandy every other day, then cover in marzipan, or slice like this and cover with brandy cream, butter or just some of my vanilla cashew cream.
  • 140g Unsalted Butter – 1 Cup
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • 1 Cup Buckwheat Flour
  • ¼ cup Chopped almonds
  • 1/3 cup ground almonds
  • 1 Orange Juice and Zest
  • Pinch ground cloves
  • ¼ tsp ground ginger
  • ¼ tsp star anise ground
  • ½ tsp fennel and cardamom seeds crushed
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3 eggs
  • 4 ½ Cups brandy soaked dried fruit OR
  • 2 Cups Raisins
  • 2 Cups Sultanas
  • ½ cup cherries chopped
  • ¼ cup dried apricots chopped
Melt the butter gently with the coconut sugar, stirring to dissolve. Sift the flours and spices together in a large mixing bowl. Whisk the eggs into the melted butter quickly so as not to scramble them, adding ½ the orange juice and all the zest. Fold into the flours and nuts carefully, adding the fruit. Double line an 8 inch cake tin. Scrape the mixture into the tin. Bake at 140 for 2 hours until golden brown. Leave to cool in the tin and spend the next week or two feeding it with brandy if you want. Spearing it all over with a cocktail stick or skewer, and then spooning a tiny bit of brandy into the holes. Cover tightly with tin foil and store in a tin until needed. Decorate with holly, fruit and nuts and charms. Marzipan and icing can be rolled out and added on as optional extras!

I just want to say Thank You to everyone who supported me through the years. My name is Manuel Franco, New Berlin, Wisconsin. My story of how I won the Powerball lottery of $768.4M is a bit of a tale. I have been playing Powerball tickets for 6 years now since I turned 18. I bought my first ticket on my 18 birthday. I was feeling very lucky that day because I had contacted Dr. Odunga Michael to help me with the winning Powerball numbers. I really had that great great feeling that I looked at the camera wanting to wink at it. I only did a tiny part of it and trusted him. He gave me the numbers after I played a couple other tickets along with it for $10. I checked my ticket after the winnings came online and saw the numbers were correct including the Power play. I screamed for about 10 minutes because it felt like a dream. I had won $768.4M. You can check my winning testimony with the lottery officials just with my name search. Thank you Dr Odunga. Well, his email is odungaspelltemple@gmail.com and you can also call or Whats-app him at +2348167159012 so you guys can contact him
