Light in Flavour

When you want a delicate sweetness in your baking, using White Sugar or Caster Sugar can provide a subtle sweetness that enhances the other flavours without overpowering them.

Fruity

Using fruit can add a natural, fruity sweetness to baking, creating a refreshing, light flavour or adding sweet tartness. White Sugar or Caster Sugar in baking, allows the flavour of the fruit to shine and Jam Setting Sugar preserves the taste of fruit in vibrant jams.

Nutty

Coconut Sugar bring a subtle nuttiness to baked goods, elevating the taste with a mild, natural sweetness and pairs beautifully with tropical flavours.

Spiced

Using sugars with spices like cinnamon, ginger, licorice or chai can lend a warm, aromatic sweetness to baking.

Caramel

Utilising brown sugars or incorporating caramelised sugar syrups creates a richer, deeper flavor profile, adding a hint of caramel or toffee-like taste.

Chocolate

Chocolate adds a decadent richness to baked goods with its deep cocoa flavour, making it perfect for indulgent treats. Try adding a deep flavoured Brown Sugar to the mix for enhanced chocolate flavour.

This easy to make Christmas cake is the best! The secret to success is baking it on a low temperature for longer. This makes two cakes - halve the recipe if you only want one but it is worth making two!

Method
Heat Tararua Butter, Chelsea White Sugar, fruit, sherry, spice, Edmonds Baking Soda and Chelsea Golden Syrup in a large saucepan. Heat over a medium heat for 2 minutes, stirring often. Allow to cool fully (at least 1 hour).
Heat oven to 125°C conventional bake. Grease 2 x deep 20cm round tins (or 2 x regular 30cm tins) and triple line with baking paper, ensuring the paper extends up the sides beyond the tin.
Beat eggs and stir through cooled fruit mixture. Sift dry ingredients and fold into fruit mixture with orange zest.
Spoon into tins, bake for approximately 3 -3 ½ hours or until cooked when tested with a skewer. Decorate once cool.

Store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place. Wrap in tin foil, and then cheesecloth. Will keep for at least a year and stays deliciously moist.

Note
We have updated this recipe to make it easier to bake by spreading it across two cake tins. You can still make it as one cake, just use a larger tin and allow for a longer cooking time (approximately 4 hrs) and check it regularly.

Additional tips

Place a double layer of baking paper across top of tin to prevent cake browning too quickly (avoiding contact with cake mixture).
