It was the week of the Village Show. And I was having one of my Kirstie Allsop moments.
Tales of my trials and tribulations may follow (the scones that were so bad that the judges wouldn’t even taste).
My fruit cake, however, was a triumph. I borrowed the recipe shamelessly from Delia. I really wanted something relatively quick and light. And this one ticks those boxes as it uses crushed pineapple to give it moistness.
I adapted the recipe slightly to make it a bit extra special by swapping some of the dried fruit for Kirsch soaked morello cherries. I wanted something a bit more classy than the usual glacés. (I am sure there are gourmet glacés in the world, but they haven’t made it to our bit of the Back Woods yet).
The result? Well, let’s just say I can now call myself an award winning baker. (There’s no promotion like self-promotion, right?)
And I’m not telling anyone it was my first attempt!
