Christmas Cake Recipe

This was emailed to me by a friend:


* 2 cups flour
* 1 stick butter
* 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

* Nuts
* 2 bottles wine
* 2  cups of dried fruit

Sample the wine to check quality.  Take a large bowl, check the wine again. To be sure it is of  the highest quality, pour one level cup and drink. Repeat.  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 wine is still OK. Try another  cup... Just in case. Turn off the mixerer thingy. Break 2 eggs  and add to the bowl and chuck in the cup of dried fruit.

Pick the frigging fruit up off floor. Mix on the  turner.. If the fried druit gets stuck in the beaterers just  pry it loose with a drewscriver. Sample the wine to check for  tonsisticity. Next, sift two cups of salt. Or something. Check  the wine. Now shift the lemon juice and strain your nuts. Add  one table. Add a spoon of sugar, or some fink. 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 wine and  wipe counter with the cat.
Go to shop and buy  cake.

Bingle  Jells!

  1. That is the best yet..........merry christmas to you too.

  2. Great recipe. I'll try that one lol

  3. This reminds me of the time a friend dropped over with a bottle of wine when I was in the midst of baking a Black Forest cake for a birthday dinner that evening. As I was stirring the hot syrup that was to be poured on said cake, chatting and sipping away at the wine ... the syrup began to congeal to become softish-toffee. No longer pourable, it was decided by the wine and I to spread it on the cake instead... Later on at the party, the birthday honouree plunged in the knife, and then with a big grin asked me if it was a joke. I, bewildered, shook my head. The toffee had hardened and held fast the knife so that she could not pull it out. As the knife was tugged, the cake lifted off the plate... You see, I have been known to make cakes that were exploding ones, but this one caught me by surprise!

  4. I think it's much like my style of cooking Frank.

  5. The wine section sound OK to me Keith lol.

  6. Public confessions now Glo lol. As for toffee, it's either soft enough to glue teeth together or hard enough to break them.
    I remember when I first got a microwave and tried making small cakes in it, They looked great on the outside but were charcoal in the middle.
