Grandma Kiwicakes has been busy, she's made Black Bun for Hogmanay (the Scottish word for New Years Eve) When I was growing up my Grandad made dumpling for Christmas and Black Bun for Hogmanay. It needs a little time to improve (in the same manner a Christmas cake does), hence it's made some weeks before.
Usually we make it in one square cake tin. See my earlier post here for recipe and full size version However this year as my older brother is overseas, Grandma Kiwicakes made them in loaf tins, so she could post one to him. It should be arriving in the mail in the USA right about now.
