Rich Fruit Cake

If you put a teaspoon of sugar mixed with your yeast and water, it will make it raise better.

Remember to never mix salt directly with the yeast and water mixture as the salt kills the raising action.

I am a mum and wife to a lovely caring family. I’ve suffered with chronic back pain for over 30 years and started writing my first blog in 2007 which covered back and chronic pain. Since then I have written many more blogs for myself and customers. I find it takes me away from my pain to another place. I love it so much I think it should be part of a recovery process after illness or surgery. I hope you enjoy reading through my blogs.


      1. Why would you go back to making it yourself, surely its much quicker with the machine. I keep saying I will buy one, but I’m wondering if i would then end up making too much of it. 🙂


      2. Yes, I guess so really, it’s like baking instead of buying it in a packet to bake. Gosh it’s making me feel hungry. Must get to bed away from food before I start on some supper. 🙂
