2016-12-16-1481846817-7548811-christmascake2.jpg

Cosy, colourful decor is just as important as bringing those sweet spices to life in a Christmas cake, and this enticing cake does both! It is soft, made half of almond flour and half of whole wheat or spelt flour, it has lots of sweet juicy cranberries, sultanas and prunes as well as blended satsumas, and it has an abundance of spices, cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, nutmeg, clove and pepper. The luxuriously creamy topping is made of soaked and blended cashews, vanilla and coconut oil, garnished abundantly with pomegranates and pistachios. Rich, warm and pleasurably healthy!
