Best Newfoundland Christmas Cake Recipes. A collection of 16 recipes for traditional Christmas Cakes from my childhood, plus new twists on tried & true favourites.
The Best Classic Canadian Butter Tarts. There’s a reason why we have a national obsession with these sweet, buttery, caramel-y tarts. I’ve sampled them in many places across the country and this thick pastry version is my favourite. Don’t do the raisin debate, just leave them out if they are not your thing. Everyone should be able to enjoy them as they like them.
Christmas Plum Pudding. Bringing back a traditional favourite. A real old fashioned British favourite, with no suet and modern day tweaks to make it perfectly.
Peach Fruitcake. A decades old family recipe for a dense, flavourful and very moist fruitcake for the Holiday season, with instructions for soaking in brandy too.
Loaded Butter Tarts. Traditional, easy-to-make butter tarts with the addition of toasted pecans, chocolate chips, raisins and dried coconut; ultimately decadent.
Simnel Cake. A British Easter tradition. A light fruitcake with a layer of marzipan baked into the centre, then topped with a traditional marzipan decoration.
