Since our National Day is only four days away here in Norway
I thought it appropriate to post a holiday cake to day so
my Norwegian visitors had time to bake it

The success of this deliciously rich, moist cake lies in soaking the dried mixed fruits in strong dark tea the evening before; the tea adds a subtle depth of flavor to the cake. For this reason you will need a little advance planning to allow time to soak the fruits. It is worth it though so don’t be put off.
A cake recipe inspired by a book by Philip Pullman
found on theguardian.com
Lunch, in their Bohemian household, consisted of a jug of ale, the remains of a large joint of roast beef, a fruit cake and a bag of apples, which Rosa said she had been given the night before by one of her admirers, a porter in Covent Garden market. They ate it, with the help of one large pocket knife and their fingers.
– From “The Ruby in the Smoke” by Philip Pullman
A tempting, exotic fruit cake recipe found on tesco.realfood.com
With a name like that one would think we’re taking about a Scottish speciality, but the recipe actually stems from the Caribbean Islands. But with Whiskey, nuts and dried fruit it may very well replace the more traditional fruit cake around my neck of the woods from now on.
