I tried this with my own mix of ingredients to suit our family’s tastes. The great thing about this recipe is you can add your favourite fruits, sweets or savouries. It’s quick and easy to put together and enjoyed by all around the Christmas table.

Soak the fruit overnight in the rum.

In a mixer place the egg yolks, golden syrup, honey and vanilla essence.
Whip until thickened and ribbon-like (about 5 mins).
Add cream and whip until looks like whipped cream (about 2 mins).
Fold in the cake pieces and fruit, and pour into cake tin.
