5 of the most delicious foods for Christmas

When we think of delicious Christmas food, we usually think of cookies and chocolate cakes, and then, of course, ice cream and pie.

But this is not the only great Christmas dessert that we eat.

Here are five of the best Christmas dessert recipes you can try at home.

1.

Carrot and Apple Carrot Cake Recipe by Sarah Geddes, author of Carrot & Apple Carrots Recipe: “My parents are both obsessed with carrot and apple cakes.

They have never had them in person, so when I first started writing this recipe I was a little apprehensive.

But as I went through the recipe and watched how my family loved it, I realised that the real reason why they loved it was that I was the only one in the house who didn’t have them in my home.

So, naturally, it turned out to be one of my favourite Christmas desserts ever.

I’ve since created this version of the carrot cake for my mum’s birthday and it is delicious and full of flavour!”
