The question on many bakers lips at this time of year is 'when should I make my Christmas Cake?' Well, the time is nigh if you want to give your cake plenty of time to mature and develop a lovely rich flavour. And you'll need to 'feed' it regularly as the big day approaches.

Beloved Kiwi cook Jo Seagar joins the show to talk us through the ins and outs of making a moreish and moist Christmas Cake.

Click here for Jo's own recipe, modified from one found in the archives of the Oxford Museum.
