Easy fruitcake recipe

Make this Christmas Cake which is quick and easy - start early to avoid the Christmas rush, make your cake whilst hanging Christmas decorations, adding some brandy or whiskey to keep it flavoursome.

Prepare this fruit cake in advance and feed it regularly with rum, brandy or whisky to build the flavour and keep it moist.


  • 1kg mixed dried fruits (use a mix of raisins, sultanas, currants, cherries, cranberries, prunes or figs)
  • zest and juice 1 orange
  • zest and juice 1 lemon
  • 150ml brandy, Sherry, whisky or rum, plus extra for feeding
  • 250g pack butter, softened
  • 200g light soft brown sugar
  • 175g plain flour
  • 100g ground almonds
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp mixed spice
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground cloves
  • 100g flaked almonds
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  1. Put the dried fruit, zests and juice, alcohol, butter and sugar in a large pan set over a medium heat. Bring to the boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 5 mins. Tip the fruit mixture into a large bowl and leave to cool for 30 mins.
  2. Heat oven to 150C/130C fan/gas 2. Line a deep 20cm cake tin with a double layer of baking parchment, then wrap a double layer of newspaper around the outside – tie with string to secure.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients to the fruit mixture and stir well, making sure there are no pockets of flour. Tip into your prepared tin, level the top with a spatula and bake in the centre of the oven for 2 hrs.
  4. Remove the cake from the oven, poke holes in it with a skewer and spoon over 2 tbsp of your chosen alcohol. Leave the cake to cool completely in the tin.
  5. To store, peel off the baking parchment, then wrap well in cling film. Feed the cake with 1-2 tbsp alcohol every fortnight, until you ice it. Don’t feed the cake for the final week to give the surface a chance to dry before icing.
Decorate the top of the cake with marzipan, white icing and cute Christmas decorations

Jingle Bells is one of my personal favourites since I was a child:

Dashing through the snow
In a one horse open sleigh
Over the fields we go
Laughing all the way
Bells on bob tail ring
making spirits bright
What fun it is to ride and sing
A sleighing song tonight.

Oh jingle bells jingle bells
jingle all the way!
Oh what fun
it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh, Hey!
Jingle bells jingle bells
Jingle all the way!
Oh what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh

A day or two ago
I thought I'd took a ride
And soon Miss Fannie Bright
Seated by my side
The horse was lean and lank
Misfortuned seemed his lot
He got into a drifted bank
And we we got upsot

Oh jingle bells jingle bells
jingle all the way!
Oh what fun
it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh, Hey!
Jingle bells jingle bells
Jingle all the way!
Oh what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh

A day of two ago
The story I must tell
I went out on the snow
And on my back I fell;
A gent was riding by
In a one-horse open sleigh
He laughed a there I sprawling lie
But quickly drove away

Oh jingle bells jingle bells
jingle all the way!
Oh what fun
it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh, Hey!
Jingle bells jingle bells
Jingle all the way!
Oh what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh

Rent a friend for any occasion

Meet Daisy.... this is her story about how she started Dukes of Daisy and the success of the business as well as reassurance of why Dukes of Daisy is different to the regular escort agency.

It all started about 9 years ago when I booked my first rent a man, I remember being a little bit nervous - in fact the thought of the whole thing made me want gag. My main concerns were what if people find out I used an escort, what if people recognise the escort I'm with and at the back of my mind, what's going to happen at the end of the evening. I wasn't looking for anything sexual at the time, I just wanted some one to accompany me to the annual ball that my company held each year as everyone else seemed to have a partner coming.

I was at an age where people expected me to be married with children or at least have a man in my life. Being career driven meant I didn't dedicate much thought to any of those things. Not to mention children are a handful.

After changing my mind several times I decided to just go for it and got in touch with an agency that had been recommended to me at the time. I decided that I'd book an escort for dinner first so I could pan out if he'd be acceptable before I expose him to my colleagues. I spoke to Jonathan over the phone before our dinner 'date'. He knew exactly what I was feeling and put me at ease.

I booked a table at a restaurant I'd never been to and anyone who knew me wouldn't be likely to turn up. I got to the restaurant half an hour early and even prepared some questions I would ask Jonathan.

When he arrived, I was expecting an extremely handsome man that would use a bunch of corny lines then try to bed me. He was indeed handsome, but a complete gentlemen. I paid him up front for the 3 hours we agreed upon and he was very considerate, charming and listened closely. He's focus was completely on me, he made me feel like I was the only person in the room.I was completely at ease and at the end of the evening we went our separate ways.

2 weeks later, Jonathan accompanied me to the ball. I introduced him as simply Jonathan. Even though there was unlimited alcohol he remained on the ball and made sure I was well looked after. My boss got on well with him and Jonathan always seemed to know what to say no matter the situation or the questions.

My experience with Jonathan put me in high spirits, I had seen another side to rent a friend male escorts and decided I would definitely use them again.

Over the following years I used several escorts from various agencies and had become well acquainted with what was to be expected from a professional escort. Though there were several occasions that my chosen companion offered to 'come back to mine' or tried to get a sneaky goodnight kiss. Most of my experiences were exceptional. I even began recommending some of the gentlemen I met to close friends and colleagues. Before I knew it, I had gathered a group of gentlemen that were keeping busier through my recommendations than with the agencies they paid extortionate fees to register with.

After being made redundant in the Autumn - a close friend who I had met on an escort date suggested I start my very own agency. After all I had all the experience to know the types of escorts to avoid and already had a good social circle of regular 'clients'. More importantly than that, I wanted other women to experience the benefit of having a professional escort at their side, and change the negative perception people have of those within the escort industry.

I've been operating Dukes of Daisy through recommendations alone and have managed to build a strong client base of Ladies and Gentlemen. I would be honoured if you joined our thriving community as a Duke or a Daisy and see how rewarding it can be.


Learn all about The G Spot Massage

Find out how to gain emotional freedom and relief from sexual dysfunctions

The Sacred Spot Massage is also called the Vagina Massage, the G Spot Massage or the Yoni Massage. Through the use of Tantric and Tao body work techniques the stagnant negative emotions in a woman are released by Female Ejaculation. Emotional Detox is good for one’s soul and can be achieved through Yoni vaginal massage.

As Rumer Godden states, ‘There is an Indian proverb that says that everyone is a house with four rooms, a physical, a mental, an emotional, and spiritual. Most of us tend to live in one room most of the time but unless we go into every room every day, even if only to keep it aired, we are not a complete person.’ In order to achieve this balance the Yoni and sexual organs play a vital role in allowing our Chi, Prana or Life Force to move freely through our body.

The three ailments for the core of body work and Sacred Massage are to loosen sediments, release knots and untangle tangles.

Sediments are caused due to emotional and physical toxins that are crystalized acids in capillaries. Loosening sediments pulsating blood flow through the Yoni and other sexual organs distributing oxygen and other hormones activating health, sensuality and pleasure.

Knots in turn are surface blockages and lumps of internal tissue structure that are knotted due to stress, anger, fear, shame and other negative emotions. These knots can cause aches and pains in other body parts tending to shut down the Yoni. Knots in the superficial fasciae, lymphatic system, small nerves and capillaries can cause muscle contractions in the thighs, lower back, shoulders, neck and back.

Tangles happen at a deeper level entangling larger structures requiring deeper pressure to dissolve such as lymph nodes, tendons, larger vessels, muscles, sexual organ; also bigger structure such as fatty tissues.

The Sacred Spot Massage helps a woman in many ways one being to fathom her sexuality in comfort, increase blood flow for healthy sexual organs, instigate more intimacy and treat any past sexual traumas.

Begin a Tantric Journey with Mal Weeraratne

Tantric Journey begins with four key practices:

  1. Deep breathing with focus
  2. Body movement with feelings
  3. Chanting with expression of emotions
  4. Tantric Massage to remove negative imprints

Through the practice of Tantric Journey teaching and guidance is offered to teach clients how to become receptive to the four key practices. The process moves at a pace set by the client and helps with sexual dysfunctions, enhancing sexuality; teaching the individual to fully relax and be able to fully let go. Breaking down the layers of negativity and removing Body Armouring, Tantric Journey can help to eliminate aches and pains and help to deal with many negative issues around sexuality leading to a heightened sense of wellbeing and a new ability to enjoy pleasure and sexuality.

Mal Weeraratne explains how his pioneering treatment Tantric Journey can help anyone who wants to improve the quality and well-being of their life, by teaching them to understand the needs of their own body, mind and spirit and being able to communicate effectively to fulfil and gain their needs and desires.

He explains how we are all born free and pure, with positivity and love, which is the natural state of our being. However, throughout our existence we are subjected to a barrage of negative beliefs, conditioning, physical and psychological abuse which slowly builds up layer upon layer of negativity.  What Tantric Journey aims to do is peel back these layers and restore a state of balance and positivity.

Allow Mal Weeraratne to assist with all areas of sexual dysfunction and female impotence.

Mainstream medicine still struggles to diagnose and effectively treat female sexual dysfunction. The symptoms can include lack of sexual desire, an inability to enjoy sex, pain during intercourse, insufficient vaginal lubrication or, even if sexually aroused, a failure to achieve an orgasm leading to feelings of inadequacy, depression and alienation.  According to The Sexual Advice Association, sexual problems affect around 50% of women, making it a common problem that remains largely unheard of.  It seems that most women think they are the only ones in the world to have these problems because all the magazine articles and media coverage are about amazing sex and fantastic orgasms, but there are thousands of women out there who are in the same situation.

Many women still fail to seek treatment due to embarrassment or fear that health professionals will misunderstand them. Talking about sexual dysfunction can become a great obstacle and it is usual for couples to avoid talking about it, choosing to ignore it rather than face the awkwardness of discussion for fear of abnormality.  Indeed it is only as a last resort when their relationships are at breaking point that they search for help. Go on a tantric journey with Mal and change your life.

Also featured are excerpts from a book entitled ‘Last Letters Home’ which show the incredible emotion felt by the servicemen that fought for our country during World War I.

Lines of poppies in a row

Easy in the breeze they blow

Soldiers, sailors, and airmen in earth they rest

Their medals clasped tightly to their chest

Winter, summer, autumn and spring

Eternal rest to all, the birds do sing

Flags at half-mast in respect fly

Old comrades in arms, they cry

Remembrance Day, November each and every year

Grateful to those we hold so dear

Eagerly the people stop to bow, low

Time to remember the fallen, tears flow
