THE HISTORY OF CHRISTMAS CAKE
In case you aren’t aware of it already (which would be a little surprising!), the popular Christmas treat was started as an English traditional plum porridge. As time passed, this amazing cake became a satisfying first meal for the hard-working people of Britain after a long day of fasting.
Christmas cakes are made in different ways, but generally can also be quite flexible in terms of how they turn out! They can be light, dark, dry, heavy, spongy, leavened, unleavened, etc., and are usually made in different shapes with frosting, glazing, or dusting sugar for completion.
The great confectionary is always prepared in advance for the ingredients to absorb well and blend well with each other, giving an extraordinary end result when served on Christmas Day for the people you consider closest - the ones you call family.
