When HVBA manager Jenny Fos- ter learned that Howick historian Alan La Roche was not only a gifted academic but a talented baker, who each year baked for himself the original Howick Christmas Cake, she went ‘knocking on his door.’ Jenny soon discovered Alan was using a recipe which made its print debut in Aunt Daisy’s Radio Cook- ery Book No. 4 in 1934, and felt it could become the ofﬁcial Howick Christmas Cake. Thought to resemble the tradi- tional Fencible Christmas Cake that was sent overseas to soldiers during the Second World War, the HVBA hopes the Howick Christ- mas Cake will now become the quintessential Christmas symbol in local households. “We ﬁrst ensured the recipe was tried, tested and replicated to per- fection by Howick Village Market regular, Kathy Lister, of Listers’ Homemade Preserves,” Jenny says. “As a result Kathy has produced 60 cakes in her A-grade kitchen to mark Christmas in true Howick fashion. Priced at $35 each, they will be on sale in front of the ASB Bank on Picton Street, during the annual Midnight Madness this Friday, November 16. But hurry – for this limited supply of festive ‘stars’! Alan La Roche and Jenny Foster from HVBA display the Howick Christmas Cake. Howick Christmas Cake makes an appearance!
