Cumberland Rum Butter

I did this too: Cumberland Rum Butter. I remember, when eating this, that I said to my family: “I would do it again”. But I never did. 😦 May be it’s time to repeat the experience and use this lovely butter with cakes and other home-made sweets. Merry Christmas!

The Classic Christmas Cake

Merry Christmas! Yes, I’ve made this too. Please try it once, at least. I know I wouldn’t, though never say never. Enjoy a beautiful English Christmas Cake with your family and loved ones. I also invite you to watch a wonderful Christmas Concert of one of the most loved Romanian artists, Tudor Gheorghe. Keep Christmas in your hearts!

Ho, ho, ho! Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas, dear friends and occasional readers of this blog! I come today with a new recipe I made for Christmas, a long, long time ago, in London. As you might have guessed, it is a traditional English Christmas recipe. I don’t particularly like it but I like traditions. And I really wanted to do this, to try my hand at something that seemed to me a bit hard. So, I picked a cookbook from the shelf in the kitchen and what book should have been but Delia Smith’s Christmas, published in 2001. And what recipe, can you guess? But the “Traditional Christmas Pudding“. So I started work long before Christmas as I had to keep it in a cool place for weeks. I gathered all the ingredients and worked  on it and I was very happy with the result. The recipe is already on the internet, just click on the link above and enjoy!

Merry Christmas!
