Pro Baking Tips for the Perfect 1lb Christmas Cake Recipe

Quality Ingredients: Always opt for the finest ingredients because freshness enhances flavor and taste.

Avoid overmixing: Once the flour is in, fold gently. Overmixing can make the cake dense.

Pre-soak the fruits: Soak the dried fruits overnight in brandy or orange juice for a juicier texture.

Test for doneness: Don’t rely solely on time. Always do the skewer test to ensure the cake is baked perfectly.

Cool Properly: Allow the cake to cool in the tin for 15 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack. If you won’t cool it, it will ruin its appearance.
