I think everyone goes overboard at Christmas just because they can.  It's been 19 years since I last had to make a Christmas cake and I've not missed it one bit.  I think I'd rather have a Lemming Drizzle cake anyway. wink

I'll try that again!

I find lemmings make the cake go red, but each to his own !!

Nah, not mine, they are definitely yellow and live in the fruit bowl.

I'll try that again!

Ha ha ha - I think the Lemming episode was before Chris was on the forum.  lol. big_laughbig_laughbig_laugh

Must admit my mother makes 4 xmas cakes each year; hers and myself and 2 sisters.  We've never asked though - she enjoys it she says.  Hers have figs and things in as well.  Must get round to trying my own one day! chef

Think you can reduce it to 6 basic ingredients but I'm wary that Nigel Slaters has no spices in??!  Not quite the 5 you wanted Chris... big_laugh

Ruth, I have crossed Nigel off my Christmas Card list!!

I guess the old recipe is still the best but I live in hope rather than expectation

I honestly don't think there is any short cut to be found.

No, I think you're right.  This kind of thing needs the depth of flavour all the different ingredients bring.  Hmmm " I'll work on it.  Admittedly I did manage to reduce the number of ingredients by having '1+ kg mixed dried fruit and nuts to your taste' as 1 item so not sure if that may be classed as cheating¦? big_laugh
