Christmas Baking

Nana Lil’s Mincemeat Fruitcake recipe comes from our colleague Sarah, if you look closely you can see Nana Lil in the picture! It’s a delicious fruit loaf made with mincemeat mixed in, perfect as a last minute bake or to use up any mincemeat after Christmas.

This is my Nana’s recipe for an all in one fruit cake. Her name was Lil and she was forever baking, something which has passed on through our family.

We have quite a large, close-knit family and my Nana and Poppa’s house at Christmas has been described like a scene from Little Women. My Nana would be baking for weeks in advance and friends and family were welcome to come and go as they pleased.

I have lovely memories of growing up when the whole family would get together for Christmas dinner. We’re a bit too big for that now so end up on a bit of a relay on Christmas Day around each other’s houses and take every opportunity we can throughout the year to get together, whether for a big party or just popping round for a cuppa

When it comes to the easiest stuffing ever, our colleague John says

This has been a family favourite for the last ten years and always makes an appearance on the Christmas table, we even take it with us when we travel to relatives for dinner.
