Cake-Off Challenge: Brandy Muffins

The fifth and final cake to be tasted and tested in Round 3 of the 2010 Christmas Cake-Off Challenge was Richard’s Brandy Muffins. “I took a Christmas cake recipe and cooked it in a muffin tray,” he explained. “But I multiplied the brandy content by about four, and then poured a bit more on top. Oh, and I soaked the fruit in brandy for about two weeks beforehand too.”

Guest Judge, Lord Forrester of Governor’s Bay, had this to say about the creation:

The wafer of the fruit cake world. Almost a florentine like texture. The most Christmas tasting of our offerings this festive season.

Other comments from the assembled tasters included “Definitely tastes of Christmas (but not turkey curry),” and, “Gnomphphnomomnomph.”
