Vodka Christmas Cake

Pin It

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
1 tsp. baking powder
1 cup water
1 tsp. salt
1 cup brown sugar
lemon juice
4 large eggs
1 bottle 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 1 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 2 eegs 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 getas stuck in the beaterers, just pry it loose with a drewscriver. Sample the Vodka to test for tonsisticity. Next, sift 2 cups of salt, or something. Check the Vodka. Now shit 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.

My neighbor and dear friend, Karin, sent me this recipe knowing that I needed a good laugh this weekend.  I am sharing it with you because I know WE ALL need a good laugh this weekend.

  1. I followed it to the letter, and it was brilliant!

  2. How cute! When I saw the title and then the picture, well -- you had my curiosity! I've seen it made with rum but never vodka and all I could think is that the flavor wouldn't be as complex as with rum! I was wrong!

  3. Thanks! It was fun starting my day giggling out loud!

  4. Thanks for the great laugh this morning! Will keep this one, promise!!

    Christmas hugs!

  5. Got everything measured and ready to go but my vodka seemed a bit off after the first cup, so I tried the rum version, that was not very sucessful since I didn't have a full bottle...but at this point..

    Thank you Julieta and Karin for a good laugh which I believe we all needed.

  6. A very Merry Christmas to you. And, by the way, I love your sous chef!

  7. Most amusing. Final words might well read: "Bo to ged."
