This last week has been a whirl of Japanese cheesecake, Christmas fruitcake and spiced fruit en papillote activity! The Christmas cake saga continues and I should whip up some Halloween treats so I’m keeping this cake roundup short. Hope you don’t mind and might even appreciate a shorter post.
First, Japanese cheesecakes have been a delightful revelation for me. Light, fluffy, tasty and amazing. I thoroughly enjoyed the many prototypes for my citrus cotton soft Japanese cheesecake. As did my climbing friends and I can’t resist reposting this photo of them eating it with me. They’re just so lovely and cheerful! 🙂
I also intend to make not one but several Christmas fruitcakes with ginger so I can eat some this week and not have to wait till Christmas! Lol. Will give you more details of my crafty Multiple-Xmas-Cake-Eating 5-point Plan with the recipe I’ll post very soon. If you’d like to start soaking your dried fruit now here’s part of the illustrated recipe (quantities are for a round 20cm cake). Finally, if you want something fast and simple you can’t go wrong with spiced fruit en papillote, steam-baked in baking paper. The most amazingly easy, effective, delicious, adaptable, beautiful, simple, aromatic dessert I’ve come across in a while. I could easily add more adjectives but I’ll just let you gaze at a photo of it teamed up with the Japanese cheesecake. What a lovely couple…
Oooh so fast and so short. Thank you for visiting and coming on this whirlwind cake tour sweet reader. Hope you’re having a lovely week. Quick hugs – I feel I’ve known some of you a while now. Happy baking and eating! 🙂 x
P.S. Here’s a funny card someone gave my mum, who reckons it works for both of us. 🙂 Which are you, the person on the left or the right? lol
