I never posted this recipe before and I dont know why, anyway this is the Christmas cake recipe my Mom make all Christmas, is a really good recipe and with this quantites you have 2  cakes.

Honestly I think is the best Christmas fruit cake I tasted, is moist, lovely dark color, and smell fantastic, when I made this cake yesterday all the house smell to cinnamon,cloves and ginger all day:)

At home we love eat this cake in the Christmas morning at breakfast with a tea or a coffe.

If you are interesting I have too the Christmas cookies of my mom and  you can find here.

Pan de Pascua (de mi mamá)










 
 
 
 
Siempre había pensado hacer esta receta de mi mamá (que considero el mejor pan de pascua que he porbado) mi mamá lleva años haciendole incluso antes lo vendía a pedido (ahora ya se cansa mucho tiene 82 años)
La considero una receta estupenda de pan de pascua (me ha tocado probar varios) es húmedo,  delicioso, tiene la cntidad justa de frutas y nueces y huele maravilloso.
Con esta cantidad salen 2 panes de pascua asi si quieren menos hacer la mitad d ela receta, se puedehacer en este tipo de molde (mas alto) o en los otros más extendidos.
Además tengo la receta de mi mamá de las galletas de navidad que mi mamá hace siempre, aún hace para regalar!
pueden ver la receta de las galletas aqui.
