I love Christmas cake, mince pies, Christmas pudding and all the yummy treats of the festive season. When I lived in UK everything I ever wanted to indulge in was one delicatessen away but here in Nairobi specialised foods are sometimes hard to find and if you do manage to get something, itโ€™s usually way too expensive.

250g dark brown soft sugar

125g maple syrup (but I used golden syrup)

4 medium eggs

100g whole blanched almonds

275g plain white flour

1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda

1-2 tbpโ€ฆ
