Have you ever heard of a Tunis cake? A lot of people haven't which I think is a shame because really they are divine. Vintage Tunis cakes are a non-fruit cake alternative to traditional Christmas cake. I believe McVities used to make them at Christmas time though I've no idea why they stopped. To me a Tunis cake seems like the perfect choice to go alongside the super indulgence of fruit packed, alcohol soaked, spiced laden Christmas cake shrouded in marzipan and sugar paste. The simplistic Madeira cake base topped with chocolate icing and topped with marzipan fruits (if you wish) is the ideal cake to turn to in times when you want to calm down over the festive period and enjoy something a little plainer.
