Subbu's Christmas Cake

What with all the baking and cooking being done by Moppet's Mom and CeeKay, I've decided to post a recipe too! Since I'm no expert baker (ask Dipali) I'm posting a recipe I copied off a friend.

So here is how Subbu makes Christmas Cake:

1 cup water
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
1 cup brown sugar
lemon juice
4 large eggs
lots of nuts
1 bottle Vodka
2 cups of dried fruit

Sample the vodka to check quality. Take a large bowl, check the vodka again.
To be sure it is the highest quality, pour one level cup and drink.
Turn on the electric mixer. Beat one cup of butter in a large fluffy bowl.
Add one teaspoon of sugar. Beat again. At this point it's best to make sure the vodka is shtill OK.
Try another cup .... just in case. Turn off the mixerer.
Break 2 leggs and add to the bowl and chuck in the cup of dried fruit.
Pick fruit off floor.
Mix on the turner.
If the fried druit gets stuck in the beaterers pry it loose with a sdrewscriver.
Sample the vodka to check for tonsisticity.
Next, sift two cups of salt. Or something. Who giveshz a crraaap.
Check the vodka.
Now shift the lemon juice and strain your nuts.
Add one table.
Add a spoon of sugar, or somefink. Whatever you can find.
Greash the oven and the fridge.
Turn the cake tin 360 degrees and try not to fall over.
Don't forget to beat off the turner.
Finally, throw the bowl through the window, finish the vodka and kick the cat.
Fall into bed.

Moppet's Mom -- That's just what I said to myself when I read the recipe.

Dipali -- You promise me first that you aren't just saying that to make me feel better. In any case, it was a mix, although I really can make form scratch. :)

Hack -- Isn't it?

Choxbox -- Yeah!

Sandeep -- Well... if you have a head strong enough to document what happens when you're nearing the end of a bottle of vodka, you may just be strong enough to hang on to the bottle somehow. No? :)
