As Christmas approaches, baking is a wonderful way to prepare for the festive season. Whether you are whipping up traditional mince pies and Christmas cake or something a little different, here are ten Christmas baking recipes you must not miss.

  • Spiced German Christmas Biscuits, Lebkuchen, from Penne For Your Thoughts are simple to make and leave a lovely festive smell through the house.
  • Tin and Thyme’s lightly fruited cake made with festive figs, almonds and a good slug of whisky makes a good alternative to a traditional Christmas cake.
  • If you can’t face making yet another tray of mince pies, knock up this delicious mincemeat and apple shortcake slice from Family Friends Food instead.
  • ‪Lancashire Food makes fresh cranberry and almond slices as an alternative Christmas bake using beautiful fresh cranberries.
  • This light Christmassy tart with a crumble topping from The Botanical Kitchen is delicious and so easy to make for guests at Christmas.
  • If you’re looking for a gluten free option try this Christmas cake by Natural Kitchen Adventures with ground almonds and buckwheat flour. The dried fruit is soaked in amaretto so it’s still just as decadent!
  • ‪Foodie Quine’s candy cane rocky road is a quick and easy no bake bar that would be great for kids to help make.
  • Try these mince pies from Franglais Kitchen – topped with a delicate almond frangipane they are like mincemeat Bakewell tarts.
  • These comforting make ahead Christmas cookies from Kerry Cooks combine cinnamon, oats and triple chocolate – the perfect treat to leave out for Santa!
  • The aromatic blend of mixed spice, cinnamon and ground ginger in these gingerbread muffins from Miss Friday’s Feast give the kind of warmth only Christmas could, making them perfect for Christmas morning.

So You Know...

As you've likely heard and seen, there's an increasing focus on the authenticity of follower growth and engagement on social platforms across the Influencer Marketing community. The platforms themselves have taken measures to deter inauthentic activity and brands now more closely scrutinise the audiences of the influencers with whom they are partnering.

The Flea Network has implemented a system that will detect abnormal spikes in following and engagement, and flag these properties. Of course, such spikes can often be attributed to viral posts or high-profile brands that bring greater exposure to some content.

If one of your social accounts is flagged by our system without an obvious reason, we may reach out to you for assistance in understanding it. If we find any influencer has artificially inflated their audience size or engagement using paid acquisition or automated, third-party tools, we will remove them permanently from our influencer community.

Feel free to reach out to us at bloggers@fleaenterprises.com with any questions or comments.

Thank you!
