Join Samantha Seneviratne in her home kitchen as she makes an almond gingerbread fruitcake (that actually tastes good). This adaptation of an often maligned Christmas staple will change your mind about fruitcake forever. Samantha folds in some rum-soaked fruit, which is a big plus in our book. And in the spirit of giving, Samantha sends a fruitcake to Chris Morrocco because fruitcake is best when shared!

HI, Do you need black magic spells to get rid of your husband's mistress ? Do you want to fix your marriage or relationship or you want to get back with your ex after breakup or you want to put a stop to that Divorce? Do you want revenge on your enemies or you want a death spell cast on someone who has wronged you in the past ? If yes then let me recommend a tested and trusted voodoo man called Dr noble who has helped me to destroy my enemy (Donald) that almost ruined my life just because i got married to his ex girlfriend which was no fault of mine. I contacted Dr Noble for his powerful death spell and in 48 hours Donald died in an accident ,it was the greatest news to me that day finally my enemy is out of the way thank you Noble. Here is Noble's contact via noblespellhome outlook. com or add him on WhatsApp for quicker communication via +2349059610643

The thing about “traditional” fruitcakes is that they were all about preserving fruits for consumption in the winter months when they were unavailable fresh. That’s why “traditional” fruitcakes involve this months-long process of rum/syrup soaks and wrapping. But this is the 21st century - we have better agricultural and preservation techniques that allow us to have greater access to these fruits throughout the year. The traditional preserved fruitcake is dead - modern interpretations are often far better, AND easier to boot. The stigma against fruitcakes is hard to shake off, but once you find a good recipe (which I think this one is), you’ll never look back!
Nocturne22 3 mánuðum síðan
That's not really true though? Traditional fruitcakes used fruits that were ALREADY dried/candied and perfectly preserved. They were incredibly expensive though, along with alcohol, so fruitcake was invented as a special occasion treat to showcase - once a year - a bounty of prized fruits and alcoholic spirits.

I have a question. Do all professional chefs prepare weighed ingredients in 100,000 separate little cups and bowls? I see that all the time, but why should I do the same? What's the advantage?
The other John Smith

@Jadot Quantities of minced meat or vegetables, I get that. But do chefs really need a tiny dish for a pinch of salt, a shaking of pepper, a tablespoon of oil, or a hint of chili? That seems wasteful to me. Just put the regular containers on the worktop, so you forget them that way.
Jadot 3 mánuðum síðan
It’s called mis en place, which is a cooking prep strategy of having everything in place before you start the cooking. It helps so that you don’t forget anything mid-process, are not hurrying to chop or measure things when something is cooking, and also just makes the whole process of working through the recipe easier. The added bonus for presenting on a video is that they can focus on explaining the recipe to the audience and we don’t have a million cuts or a long wait as they measure and prep things.

So many great things about this recipe. 1) you can customize the additions of dried fruit/nuts. 2) It can be alcoholic or not 3) It doesn't require three months advanced baking and weekly syrup soaks. 4) And most importantly... you can eat the same day. Thank you Samantha.
