Here is an award-winning no-bake Christmas cake. When it comes to making a dessert in my kitchen, it has to be fail-proof, super easy to make, healthy and delicious. I especially love no-bake desserts. You will find that this gluten-free Christmas cake is packed with flavour, is moist and without added sugar. I have included my special coconut brandy cream sauce to go with this wonderful dessert, although it is optional. Serve the gluten-free Christmas cake cold or warm, either way, this Christmas dessert is a winner!
