Notes

Recipes Hints and Tips:

  • Gluten Free Christmas Cake is suitable for freezing.  Allow the cake to cool to room temperature before double wrapping in cling wrap and freezing for up to two months.
  • Wrap the cold cake in aluminium foil (to keep the moister contained) and store in the fridge until needed.
  •  To serve, unwrap and slice very thinly.
  • Serve with brandy custard.
