Festive Cake

This is the cake my family gets treated to each year at Christmas or Easter. Every year it is a little different depending on what dried fruits or nuts I have in store. I’ve never been a fruit cake fan but the chocolate & meringue base makes all the difference & you can make this one a few days before as it will keep for at least a week in an airtight container in the fridge.

Moscato, Sparkling Whites and Rose are the best wines to pair with Festive Cake.

I saw you make a version of this at the Brisbane Good Food and Wine Show and thought it was delicious. I have made it a few times now and have made different variations - I personally like using figs and brazil nuts. It's a great cake and all my work colleagues agree!

Made this last night and it was just beautiful!! Lovely textures with the combination of meringue and nuts. Just could not decide which I liked better - eating it warm or cold! Very, very, yummy.

Thanks, Anna!
