Christmas Cake with Apples, Prunes and Walnuts

Posted by Sunsweet - Thursday, November 24, 2016

Our Christmas Cake with Apples, Prunes and Walnuts is a lighter, more contemporary twist on heavier, more traditional versions. Plentiful fruits – both fresh and dried - and delicious nuts make for a wonderfully flavourful bake. Our Christmas Cake will keep for several days, stored in an air-tight tin but it freezes well, too. Fill your home with the scent of Christmas – and enjoy!
