Christmas will be here faster than a reindeer can paw the
ground! While many people have been gathering up Christmas baking ingredients for some time
now and already have their Christmas recipes looked up, some of us may still be wondering just what
special goodies will grace our Christmas tables.
This week I have included
several ideas that will not keep you in the kitchen for hours but yet will produce something you
will be proud to serve.
Many of the recipes today even start with packaged mixes.
While some people think a “proper” cake has to be made totally from “scratch,” I think
you will find that the results from these recipes are great. One recipe this time that is a
personal favorite of mine is the sausage cake. I first got the recipe from Kerry Sinclair and
his wife, and once I tried it, it quickly became a favorite. The sausage supplies all the
shortening the cake needs, and there is no taste whatsoever of sausage in the cake. In fact,
most people don't believe you when you tell them it has it in it! Also, the Easy Red Velvet
Cake turns out very well indeed. There are many many versions of the red velvet recipe, but
this one is quite good.
It is my wish for you that this be a wonderful and blessed
Christmas, that you will find a special place in your heart for the true meaning of Christmas,
that you will share it with someone, and that as the years roll by you will look back on this
Christmas as one of your happiest and most blessed.
