Deliciously Rich Fruit Cake

Tags: , , , ,

Everyone needs a good tried and tested rich fruit cake recipe up their sleeve. Whether you ‘feed’ it with brandy, marsala or alcohol of your choice is upto you, but make sure you make it a few weeks before you plan on eating it. It tastes much better if you let the cake mature, and if you are going to ice it then leave it to dry out around 1 week before so the icing sticks!

Madeleines are a classic French cake baked in traditional scallop shaped madeleine moulds. They can be tricky to get just right, and when made well they are lighter than air. This recipe was taught to me by a baking expert and it hasn’t failed me yet.

I crave sweet stuff all the time, and these hit the spot perfectly. Slightly bigger than a muffin and just enough sweetness to cure those sugar needs.
