There’s something quite special about this time of year that inspires many of us to get into the kitchen and cook up a storm. Whether it’s a long-held tradition or something new, to help get you into the festive spirit, we asked the Mortgage Express and Harcourts' teams to share a few of their own go-to festive recipes. We hope these delectable treats will inspire you to don your apron, roll up your sleeves, and create your own festive favourites.
Vicky’s “Never-too-late Christmas Cake”
“Super-easy, this cake doesn’t need to be made months in advance! Bake just a couple of days beforehand and it still tastes fantastic. The trick is to ‘feed’ it generously every week - any whisky will do!”
