For the first time ever, Delia Smith has transformed one of her most iconic recipes, famous for over 40 years, into an ‘at home’ ingredients pack to assist even the most novice of cooks.
All the dried ingredients are contained in one pack, helping hundreds of Christmas bakers across the nation make a Christmas cake to be proud of. The new Delia’s Classic Christmas Cake, Prepared Ingredients Pack will be available in-store from 11 November at £10.
This Christmas cake recipe removes all of the hard work. No pre-soaking required, no weighing out of flour or sticky black treacle. All the ingredients have been accurately measured and the dried fruit has been pre-soaked in brandy to provide a succulent and moist cake. Simply the least stressful Christmas cake you will ever make.
Delia says, ‘This, my original Classic Christmas Cake, is possibly the most popular recipe I’ve ever done. Here, precisely the same recipe has been unbelievably simplified. No need to shop for, or weigh out, a long list of ingredients. Not only have we done this for you, we have even pre-soaked the fruits in brandy. All you do is empty the packs into a bowl, add eggs, butter, orange and lemon zests, mix it together, and bake. So happy Christmas baking!’.
At £10 Delia’s Classic Christmas Cake Prepared Ingredients pack is excellent value, as to buy all the ingredients separately would cost over £23.
