Look what came for me today!!

and I've already used it.

The kind people you meet in blog land.
Today when I came home I had a parcel waiting on the front veranda.(Thankyou to the kind postman that safely put it there)
I had won a giveaway hosted by The vintage Rose this is a lovely blog, one of those blogs that you leave feeling warm & happy as if everything in the world is good.
Please stop by The Vintage Rose and you will see what I mean.

This is my first parcel I have ever received from blog land so it will be most treasured.

The fruit cake in the above photo is one from the 4 ingredients cookbook. Easypeasy!!
1kg mixed fruit
2 cups fruit juice or cold tea
1 tbs. Sherry or the like
2 cups S.R. Flour
Soak fruit in the juice/tea & sherry for 2 hrs.
Preheat oven to 125C.
Add flour to fruit & mix well.
Put into large lined baking tin. Bake for 2hrs in the bottom of your oven.
Remove, leave to cool & keep for 2-3 dys before cooking.
You can't get any easier than this & if you didn't make a Christmas cake this year this is a very simple cake you can do very quickly.

What a lovely parcel Caroline!
Thanks for sharing the recipe for the fruit cake, it looks delicious. BTW, your linen cupboard looks fantastic! Well done. I desperately have to deep clean the house before my mum arrives on the 26th!

OOO Australia Post must be working overtime (heh heh) The parcel arrived so quickly! So glad you like it. Love that fruitcake recipe. No eggs and no butter great for people who are allergic to those things. Have a delightful Christmas!
