Currants, sultanas, free range eggs, brown sugar, cherries and almonds and of course a good splash of whisky combine to create this simple but delicious, traditional, light fruit cake. The Christmas cake is topped with luxurious marzipan and icing, and sealed with the Angel stamp of approval! It is the perfect partner for your wintry cup of tea.
The Carved Angel was founded by one of Britain's favourite chefs and food writers, Joyce Molyneux. In 1978 Joyce became one of the first women in the world to be awarded a Michelin Star. Today, the Carved Angel sticks by their founder’s premise of sourcing only the highest quality ingredients. Often adding a unique twist of their own, the Carved Angel will always have the ‘wow-factor’.
The Carved Angel is perhaps most famous for their Christmas Puddings. The story goes that while searching for the perfect winter dish, Joyce Molyneux came across a recipe for a traditional Christmas Pudding by the well-known Victorian chef, Eliza Acton. Joyce’s puddings soon became popular for being not too dark nor too pale, not too heavy nor too light, yet still with the richness expected of a good Christmas Pudding. Today, The Carved Angel continues to use Eliza Acton’s recipe for their Traditional Luxury Christmas Puddings, as well as adding their signature twist to a range of non-traditional puddings that are the perfect finish to any Christmas celebration.
