Creole Christmas Cake

Haven't a clue what galangal is, or need to know what to use if you can't buy creme fraiche locally? We're sure our knowledgeable members will be able to point you in the right direction...

Creole Christmas Cake

Hi everyone,

My question is, has anyone made this recipe without the nuts (or substituted something else). I had hoped to do this for my mum and dad as an Xmas treat (they've had a tough year) and whilst my dad LOVES Christmas cake, he doesn't like nuts at all!

Any ideas would be most gratefully received.

Thank you.

Hello Peaco1980,

You can just omit the nuts from this cake recipe.

Yep, this is gorgeous - just make sure no one has a mega huge slice of it - then drives home!!!

It is a fab cake - i top mine with the glace fruit topping.

Every christmas cake i ever make is always made nutless. I just ramp up the dried fruit to make up the weight, with cherries, or chopped up apricots/pineapple/apple.

The thing with this type of cake, is that they are very forgiving - just keep the weights.

similarly, with delias christmas puddings - i never use barely wine - i add up the liquid measurements and use wholly rum or brandy - again omitting nuts (and currants) just make the weight with whatever i fancy.
