Christmas is here. There will be Christmas carols and the snowy yet vibrant celebration all around in a few days. Hope you liked my blog Low-calorie Christmas Muffins. I was listening to the song, Miss Fogarty's Christmas Cake and then decided to prepare a crunchy cake. Crunchy cake? Yes, a nutty cake. This cake would be filled with goodness and richness of Brazil nuts, walnuts, pec-pec pecans, almonds and mild flavor of vanilla. Everyone is gonna love it. The best part is that it can be made before hand. Your family can munch it throughout the Christmas holidays.
125 grams Flour,
3/4 teaspoon Salt,
450 grams Brazil nuts,
200 grams caster sugar,
225 grams walnut halves,
225 grams pecan halves,
1 teaspoon baking powder,
2 teaspoons vanilla essence,
675 grams blanched whole almonds.
1. Preheat oven to 140 D. C. Line a large round cake tin with baking parchment and lightly grease.
2. Combine the almonds, Brazil nuts, walnuts, pecans. Sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Combine with nut mixture and mix well.
3. Beat eggs and vanilla, add to nut and flour mixture and mix well. Add into cake tin and bake for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Check with the knife.
4. Set aside for 5 minutes and remove from tins. Garnish with nuts for the Christmas treat.
