Using up left over Fruit Cake

stells3, Dec 28, 2:05am
I remember seeing a recipe years ago that used up old fruit / Christmas cake.Does anyone have a recipe they could share with me so that the cake does not go to waste.I think the cake was turned into a steamed pudding, but not totally sure.TIA

Just steam it and serve with custard or cream.

Toast it and serve with blue cheese

just make your cake last for a few months - not that hard lol
GOrdon Ramsay also has a souffle recipe that used christmas pudding but i'm sure it could be used with christmas cake too

Slice into microwave proof bowl. Sprinkle each layerwith a little golden syrup & fruit juice. Cover & microwave to heat thru. Serve with cream, custard or icecream. Yum

I've mixed it up and added 2 large Tbsps sherry, packed it into a bowl and steaming in to an hour.Hopefully it will be okay.

Thanks roseann48.That recipe for steamed pudding you posted sounds similar to the one I was thinking of, but I had already put it into the steamer before I read your post.I'll save the recipe for future reference.

If you keep "feeding" some brandy to your cake it will be fine till Easter. Why not just eat it - rather than "using it up"?
