  • Nana's Christmas Cake

    I have so many happy memories of baking with my nana when I was a child. She'd tie her mum's old apron around me, & I'd stand on a chair as she taught me how to make cakes, pastries, & eclairs. Every Christmas she'd make a fruit cake, soaked in liberal amounts of sherry. I make that cake every year, now, careful to start soaking the fruit in November, & to make a wish every time I stir it (with a silver spoon) - just as she taught me when I was a little girl. I miss her every single day.
