Cake Recipe

If you don't like Vodka, you can substitute for a drink of your choice.

Vodka Cake

Once again this year, I've had requests for my Vodka Christmas Cake recipe
so here goes. Please keep in your files as I am beginning to get tired of typing
this up every year! (Made mine this morning!!!)
1 cup sugar,
1tsp. baking powder,
1 cup water,
1 tsp salt,
1 cup brown sugar,
Lemon Juice,
4 large eggs,
1.... bottle of Vodka,
2 cups dried fruit
Sample a cup of Vodka to check quality....

Take a large bowl, check the Vodka again to be sure it is of the highest
quality then Repeat.
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 is best to make
sure the Vodka is still OK. Try another cup just in case. Turn off the
mixerer thingy. Break two eggs and add to the bowl and chuck in the
cup of dried fruit. Pick the fruit up off the floor, wash it and put it in the
bowl a piece at a time trying to count it. Mix on the turner. If the fried
druit gets stuck in the beaterers, just pry it loose with a drewscriver.
Sample the Vodka to test for tonsisticity. Next, sift two cups of salt, or
something. 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. 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 wipe the counter with
the cat. Hic!
Enjoy your cake :-)

Morning Emma, Too much sugar in this for my Diabetis. Can I dispense with all the ingredients, and just pour the Voddy into a glass, and be done with LOLOL

This is one on similar lines.

I had eighteen bottles of whisky in my cellar and was told by my wife to empty the contents down the sink, or else. I proceeded with the unpleasant task.
I withdrew the cork from the first bottle and poured the contents down the sink with the exception of one glass which I drank. I then withdrew the cork from the second bottle and did likewise with it, with the exception of one glass, which I drank. I withdrew the cork from the third bottle and poured the whisky down the sink which I drank. I pulled the cork from the fourth bottle down the sink and poured the bottle down the glass which I drank. I pulled the bottle from the cork of the next and drank one sink out of it and threw the rest down the glass. I pulled the sink out of the next glass and poured the cork down the bottle. Then I corked the sink with the glass, bottled the drink and drank the pour. When I had everything emptied, I steadied the house with one hand, counted the glasses, corks, bottles and sinks with the other, which were twenty-nine and, as the houses came by, I counted them again and, finally, I had all the houses in one bottle, which I drank. I'm not under the affluence of incohol as some tinkle peep I am. I'm not half as thunk as you might drink. I fool so feelish and the drunker I stand here, the longer I get.

Straining the whisky through the kidneys before emptying into the sink sounds better.....


Julia Report 19 Nov 2012 18:01

I always strain me spirits through me Kidney's.
Must be why I am a regular at the Renal Clinic. LOLOL
