Last minute Christmas cake

As you know, things have been fraught here, but today should be fun - I intend to make a last minute Christmas cake.

I did publish this same recipe a couple of years ago, but some of you who weren't visiting then might not have seen it and may well want to give it a try as well :)

A festive recipe with a difference!

Christmas Cake Recipe
1 cup of water
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup of sugar
1 tsp salt
1 cup of brown sugar
lemon juice
4 large eggs
bottle Vodka
2 cups of dried fruit
Sample the vodka to check quality.
Take a large bowl, check the vodka again.
To be sure it is of the highest quality, pour one level cup and drink.
Turn on the electric mixer.
Beat one cup of butter in a large fluffy bowl.
Add one teaspoon of sugar.
Beat again.
At this point it's best to make sure the vodka is shtill OK.
Try another cup ... just in case
Turn off the mixerer.
Break 2 leggs and add to the bowl and chuck in the cup of dried fruit.
Pick fruit off floor.
Mix on the turner.
If the fried druit gets stuck in the beaterers pry it loose with a drewscriver.
Sample the vodka to check for tonsisticity.
Next, sift two cups of salt. Or something. Who giveshz a shit.
Check the vodka.
Now shift the lemon juice and strain your nuts.
Add one table.
Add a spoon of sugar, or somefink. Whatever you can find.
Greash the oven.
Turn the cake tin 360 degrees and try not to fall over.
Don't forget to beat off the turner.
Finally, throw the bowl through the window, finish the vodka and kick the cat (or wipe down the work surfaces with him/her - your choice).
Snigger, snort, snort! :))

Di - and Perschnipp the bare

Tee Hee!

I think that there are gremlins at work with this commenting thing!

What I wanted to say was personally I think that booze is just for drinking and not cooking so I will just sample the Vodka!

Hope that you have a lovely Christmas Di and the Vodka eases the back pain! xx

It made me laugh last year, and because my memory is not what it used to be (nothing to do with vodka consumption) it made me laugh again this year :) Happy Christmas - hope you and Len have a wonderful day. Hugs, elizabeth xx

PS: Bonnie has just zipped out the door after reading the last instruction!!!
