Doggy Christmas Cake Recipe
Note from Fred and Tess:
We have gone for a seasonal one as Mum gets excited for Stir Up Sunday with her Christmas cake and spends days soaking the fruit in mucky juice, and we cant have any of their cake!
This is quite a treat so making it once a year is ok.
250g dried fruit (NO RAISINS)
150g chopped hazelnuts
150g almond flakes
130g wholewheat flour
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon of breadcrumbs
2 large eggs
Juice of one orange
1) Preheat oven to 180
2) Soak the dried fruit in the orange juice for 30 minutes, then drain and chop the fruit coarsely.
3) Mix all the ingredients together and once thoroughly mixed, let the mixture (should be like a dough) rest for 30 minutes.
4) Divide the dough into portions and shape into little flat round cakes.
Place the cakes on a baking tray and bake in the oven for 30 minutes.
5) Remove cakes from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool.
Store in a tub for up to 2 weeks.
Below are pictures of us helping to cook.
Alas still no pictures of the completed recipe.
