Xmas Cake with Spelt Flour and Molasses

Xmas Cake with Spelt Flour and Molasses

I love the richness that the hint of molasses brings. The wholemeal spelt flour adds a nice weight to the finished cake. My version skips nuts inside the cake itself and you can decide for yourself if you’d like to garnish the top with almonds. Bake your cake at least a few weeks before Christmas to give the flavour time to mature and deepen.
