The classic Jamaica cake is one of my favourites, but to add a festive twist I've got an amazing Ginger bread receipt that combines the zingy taste with those Christmassy favourites, cinnamon, ground nutmeg and red currants! All topped off with Cream cheese frosting – Dairy free and a lower in fat that traditional butter cream frosting
To mix the eggs, sugar and molasses ingredients together I am using the Kenwood elite and the balloon whisk – the perfect attachment to get this mixture to that smooth consistency
Ginger cake is a homely favourite. Made by melting ingredients together means the cake will be wonderfully moist and guaranteed results time after time. Molasses has no fat and no cholesterol. It is a good source of both calcium and iron – for healthy bones, blood and energy. The cake itself is dairy free, and I have chosen a cream cheese frosting which will be naturally lower in fat than butter cream.
My mince pie crumble, features traditional ingredients recipes but with a modern twist Great for those who love mince pies, and those who maybe find a little too heavy. They're also ideal treats for visitors and guests over the festive period.
Luckily I have ice cold hands ideally when making pastry – but to take the pressure out of getting the ideal consistency the Kenwood elite is perfect for this task with the K beater to mix the butter, flour and sugar till it's mixed into fine breadcrumbs.
Christmas time always reminds me of amazing smells like chestnut and camel and My Chocolate camel Roulade is the perfect alternative to the Traditional Christmas Pud and great if you are hosting a seasonal dinner party!
