A traditional Christmas Cake to make and mature at home! This baking kit contains all the ingredients you need to bake a 2lb Christmas (Loaf) cake, including our signature 82% Fat butter, French patisserie flour and Cotswold-grown Cacklebean eggs. The fruits for this cake are pre-soaked in a little brandy, but for an extra boozy kick, we recommend feeding the cake more brandy each week as you mature the cake at home.

Let the Christmas baking commence!
