Brazil Nut Brownies
If I leave out the brazil nuts will the recipe still work or do I need to add extra of something else?
I love Delias light glacé fruit cake from original Xmas book but how long will it keep before using ?
I would like to know if it is possible to reduce the amount of sugar in cake recipeM and still get good results. Sugar content
M seems so high, especially taking into account the sweetness in dried fruit as used in a Christmas cake.
If I should reduce what are the likely consequences?
I still have a few untouched jars of Delia's homemade Christmas mincemeat from 4 years ago, would it still be good to use?
I found my classic Christmas cake from 2 years ago wrapped up in greaseproof paper and foil in a forgotten tin yesterday. :o It is un--iced.
It seems to be in perfect condition with no mould and it smells amazingly rich and spiced.
Do you think it would be alright to eat?
