Non-Alcoholic Christmas Cake

 Overall, I found this recipe very easy to follow, although next time I need to remember to turn the cake over before it is iced, as the top of it was quite bumpy, as you can probably see from the photos! Ingredients 325g (12oz) self-raising flour 125g (4oz) ground almonds 1 teaspoon ground mixed spice…
