Twelfth Nite Cake

Posted by Range Officer Rhonda on January 5, 2009

 

As Christmas and New Years drifts to the beyond and the winter solstice ends, we have, on Jan 6th what many people celebrate as Twelfth nite (the end of the 12 days of Christmas). Many traditions, as that of my Danish ancestors, made a cake the eve before aptly called, “Twelfth Night Cake”. Although my cousin Sigrid from Denmark sent me a wonderful recipe to make from scratch, here is a very quick and easy cake for you to try.
 
Twelfth Nite Cake
 
Heat oven to 375 and grease 9″ round pan
Mix together topping, set aside.
Mix cake mix, pour into pan, put on topping and bake about 25 minutes. Ovens will vary.
 
TOPPING: (Toss all together and set aside)
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
2 cups approx. mixed dried fruit (If you use apricots, be sure to cut into small pieces)
I use a combination of blueberries, cherries, cranberries & apricots – occasionally pineapple as well
1/2 cup powdered sugar
 
CAKE MIX: (Mix well, spread in bottom of pan, top with TOPPING above)
2 cups ‘quick’ baking mix
1/4 cup sugar
2/3 cup milk
2 eggs
1 Tablespn. cooking oil or cooled melted butter
