Sorry to mention the ‘C’ word so early on especially on the @Hari Ghotra app ... but I’ve just put the 1st of 3 ‘Christmas’ cakes in the oven. Anyone got any cheeky little spice ideas to go in the next? I’ve already got Cinnamon, cloves and stemmed ginger in this one!

@Arthur vdH well yes that is how it was. I remember around 1983/4 we had our first 'computer' istalled at the travel agency I worked at it was called 'Prestel' and we had to connect first and it made that horrible screeching noise.... oh dear! I think I am showing my age😃😃

@dcmorris27 The Internet did exist back then, you just weren’t allowed on outside of academia and government. I was fortunate that it was opened for commercial use just before I left university. Come to think of it… if this is 2018, then this must be my 30th year on the Internet!

Apricots and prunes in mine too but use ground almonds and crushed walnuts. Pecan nuts sound great tho @dcmorris27

Same @Hari Ghotra for my parents. Cloves, cinnamon, ginger, stem ginger - had to get second one in while oven was still warm. Very close to putting 3rd batch in in prob 2 smaller cake tins. You remembered what your Hari wrist is?? Happy to try something very bizarre and adventurous 🤔🤣 xx

Dark chocolate and red chili flakes works for me. Maybe add a teeny tiny bit of ground coriander seeds or cardamom.

Whisky, spiced rum and port @Hari Ghotra - and soaked the fruit in 400ml - completely soul destroying!!
