This is my family's favorite Christmas cake. Ever since I started making it when the girls were babies, everyone who tastes it falls in love. You have to like ginger, though. Don't remember where I got the recipe, but it makes a lot, and the longer it sits, wrapped, in your fridge, the better it gets. Prep time DOES NOT INCLUDE time to soak the fruit in rum.
Posted for safekeeping from WWWRecipes, someone named Karen. In her notes, she says she prefers to chop her own chocolate instead of using chocolate chips. (serving size is a guess, I haven't made these yet.)
A little different from other recipes I've seen here, because the nuts are in the crust and there's the addition of lemon. They sound great. Wish I knew where the recipe came from! Read all the way through--notes at the end are from the original author.
Does anyone else think that recipes are just multiplying on their computers, deep in their files, while they sleep? I swear, every time I look, there are more. Haven't tried this yet, would love to hear if someone does.
Original directions said it serves 8, 2 pts per slice, but I'd double check those points to be sure.
This comes from Joe Barkson's World Wide Recipes ezine. It sounds delish, and I can't wait to try it. If you want to check out WWR, where I get tons of great recipes from great people, its www.wwrecipes.com.
