Christmas Baking has begun
The fruitcake is made and soaking. D made it on Sunday. It smells delicious - I can't wait to try it. It's a slight variation on his usual fruitcake (but still dried fruit, not candied).
Today I tried out a new recipe for pumpkin bread. It's yummy. One loaf is going to M's breakfast with parents tomorrow and the other is in the freezer for Christmas.
Then, since I was already baking, I decided to make 7 layer bars. Oooohhh, I love those things! I couldn't quite fit all of them in the tin, though. Aw darn, I guess I'll have to eat the last 2. Well, actually I already had to test one out, to make sure it was good enough to share. Yep, it was. The other will be my treat tomorrow. I may have to make another batch between now and Christmas... I like them that much.
