    We don’t like traditional Christmas pudding but we do love a raspberry and chocolate sponge cake. Super quick and easy too! Take a chocolate swiss roll and cut 2cm thick, line a bowl with it as you would a trifle, fill with frozen summer fruits and pop another layer of swiss roll to seal. Prepare well in advance and pop in the freezer, it can be taken out on Christmas eve ready for the big day!

    I’m not keen on Christmas Pudding so I do a boozy trifle which is made with fruit I’ve grown myself and frozen earlier in the year. Homegrown spuds and veg are also essential ingredients for Christmas Dinner – so much nicer knowing you grew them yourself!

    My favourite biscuit at Christmas brings back happy memories. When my children broke up for their Christmas holiday, we would make up a batch of Shortbread, then they would roll it out and use all sorts of cutters mostly Christmassy but they could have been Easter ones also. After they were baked I would mix up icing and made it all sorts of different colours, and put it in piping bags and they would do all the decorating of them. They would make up boxes with the biscuits in they would wrap them and give them as presents from them. What a lovely memory!

    I love to make gingerbread cookies – I have different cutters suitable for all the different members of my family and each year they get a handful of specially customised ones. My sister hates ginger so she gets vanilla, my dad can’t eat dairy so his are dairy free. My grandparents do ballroom dancing so I have a ‘his and hers’ cutter that I stick the hands together and make them dancing partners. Delicious and cute 😀
