    With its two key ingredients - rum and butter - this Christmas cake recipe ought to be a hit. This is less dense and more cake-like than many Christmas cake recipes. It has become a favourite of my friends and family at Christmas, and is delicious by itself, or covered with a layer of marzipan and icing.

    I make these vanilla biscuits every year, cutting the dough out in different shapes every time! They look lovely when you put some coloured icing on them. This recipe makes a lot of biscuits - great for gifts and for Santa!

    This is a really quick and easy fruit cake. If you want it a bit more moist, I'm sure you could add a couple of fluid ounces of brandy, rum or tipple of your choice.

    This easy to make cake is wonderfully moist and smells like Christmas! Serve with custard, creme fraiche or whipped cream for a lovely pud.
