Rich and fruity, this classic gluten-free Christmas cake is packed with festive flavour but also suitable for those avoiding gluten. It's quick to make as there's no need to soak the dried fruit beforehand, and the Royal icing snow scene is easy to create yet looks gorgeous. See method

Tip: You can omit the almonds and marzipan (or try a nut-free version) if you also want to make this cake nut-free.
This is perfect for a treat but maybe not for everyday!
Freezing and defrosting guidelines
Bake according to the recipe but stop before adding decoration or icing. Allow to cool completely. Wrap well in clingfilm and tin foil (to prevent freezer burn) and freeze for up to 3 months.
Loosen the tin foil and clingfilm but leave to defrost in packaging at room temperature for several hours before serving.
If you wish to add icing or decoration, add it after the baked goods have fully defrosted and are at room temperature.
