I make no apology for posting a Christmas recipe in November – Its almost December and I’m excited already. I bring this recipe to you vis the Secret Recipe Club which is hosting an extra special instalment this week. Due to there being an extra week in November, we had the opportunity to take part in a themed Recipe Swap with Party/Celebration/Holiday Treats being the theme. All in honour of Thanksgiving being around now. We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving here in the UK, so I decided to skip ahead to the next holiday – Christmas.
I was paired with th lovely Terri of Our Good Life – Terristeffes.com. A prolific blogger from New Town, Missouri – Her blog is incredible – You will get lost in it for hours. There’s news of book groups, travel tales, tons of crafts and linkies and sooo many recipes. Honestly, pop on over there and find out for yourself.
Now Terri’s recipes involve the use of cake mix so I adapted them and went with my trusty Madeira mix – I needed the cake to be sturdy enough to hold its own in the bundt tin. I was so happy with how the confetti sprinkles came out – I followed the instructions not to be tempted to use too many sprinkles and good advice it was too.
I used Christmas sprinkles – Basically any strong coloured ones will do. For decoration I went with simple icing sugar made into quite a thick consistency and a squeeze of lemon juice. Extra sprinkles on top finished off the cake perfectly!
Now its been really dark around here for yonks – Taking photographs is hideous at the moment so I decided to embrace it and go with a dark & mysterious shot.
