Rain on the window
No white Christmas – in sight
But in the kitchen

Instead of saffron buns and gingerbread … I have baked Italian nut and fruit cake. Panforte di Siena. Some Christmas spices … cinnamon, nutmeg, coriander and ginger.
The worst thing I have done!Melted sugar and honey … which solidified and became cracked before I had in all the nut and fig heaps … slipped with the ladle so sticky nuts splashed out over the floor … But the cake became delicate! However, strong teeth are required.

Will chop more, well in advance … and cover with icing sugar and cinnamon next time. Then it will be beautiful too. Maybe tomorrow?

Merry Christmas!
