Cheerful Christmas Cake 2 (Alternative recipe)

Hello again Zest Questers,

I’ve been experimenting and have come up with and alternative….well Dasher, Prancer, Comet and Vixen as well as everyone else always did like their carrots so I thought why not include it in the cake? With this I bring you an alternative recipe. Would love to know which one you like the best.

100g ground almonds

100g dates, soak overnight and whizzed to paste

150g dried fruit (I used sultanas as raisins here)

100g finely grated carrot

25g cut mixed peel

25g natural colour glace cherries


  1. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Fill a silicone baking tin ¾ full
  3. Bake for 30-40 mins at 180c (356f)
  4. Remove from oven once a skewer inserted comes out clean
  5. Leave to cool

Is this recipe right? Would love to know your thoughts!

HBD folks,
