We at homestead pride ourselves in the traditions of baking. When we look to design our menus we look at classics. This time around we took it upon ourselves to take on a new challenge: FRUIT CAKE.
Now for all you fruit cake lovers, I am going to apologize in advance. Because we straight up do not understand the hype. We wanted the ingredients to be natural, focused on traditional holiday spices; and source every ingredient possible from local suppliers. The one we are most excited about is Collingwood Whiskey, this stuff is the real deal. For those of you who don't know about them. Check out their website at www.collingwoodwhiskey.com. We used their Toasted Maple Wood Whiskey and it added such an amazing flavour to the fruitcake.
"AS A TOASTED MAPLEWOOD-FINISHED WHISKY, COLLINGWOOD IS FULL-FLAVOURED AND COMPLEX, WITH A LONG, CLEAN FINISH. IDEAL FOR SIPPING NEAT, ON THE ROCKS OR IN CLASSIC LIGHTER COCKTAILS, COLLINGWOOD IS QUITE VERSATILE."
We are jacked about the result and we hope you stop by the shop for a sweet sample of this new take on an old classic.
