of July is just around the corner, meaning is time to put on your best red and white clothing and celebrate our great nation with your family and friends. Even though we just got our citizenship last year we’ve been proudly celebrating Canada Day every single year since we moved to Canada about nine years ago. We are thankful and feel lucky to have had the chance to live in such a wonderful country! Canada is indeed the land of opportunity and hope, where you’re always surrounded by friendly people who make you feel welcome regardless of your race, nationality or culture.
Lady fingers (400 g)
16 Tbsp sugar
whipping cream, at room temperature
of pineapple chunks (350 g) – save the pineapple juice to moist the lady fingers
fruits, cut into small cubes (I used 1 orange, 4 kiwi fruits, 1 banana). Don’t use bananas if you want to refrigerate the cake for a longer time as they oxidize and turn brownish.
There are few types offruitcake either steamed or baked and the dry fruit used varies in quantity, some soaked in brandy/orange juice or without soaking - the fruit is coated with flour before adding to the butter mixture
Simply superb if served with a cup of tea. You do not need a special gadget to prepare just use a whisk would be fine because this cake will not rise much since and it's a densed type using dried fruit in the recipe
You could substitute the marshmallows and prunes with dried fruit and nuts of your choice. The Royal family has its very own recipe for this cake which uses McVities Rich Tea Biscuits as one of the ingredients, the rest of the recipe is a guarded secret
