"This is a lovely white cake with cherries and raisins added for those of you who don't want to go to the trouble of making fruit cakes. This freezes well." — Carol

halved glace cherries
The cake came out very elegant and was delicious.I used 3/4 cup oil instead of butter. The texture and taste is very close to fruit cake. The only difficulty was to prevent ourselves from eating before the cake was mature. I plan to make one more today. Thanks for a great recipe.
This is a great cake. It comes from the Best of Bridge cookbook series that came out in the 70's and 80's. I make it every winter and it always turns out great. Add some glace pineapple and coconut and it's even better.
Absolutely amazing. Delicious!
I cut back the cooking time to 1 3/4 hours, though.
Even though I haven't tasted this cake yet (I am saving it for Christmas Day) it was easy to make and smells so good! I used multi-coloured glace cherries and added finely chopped almonds and pistachios. My guests will be impressed for sure!
Turned out really nice! Everyone really enjoyed and I used green cherries.
Wonderful cake!!! I use half butter and half shortening ( I don't really like the buttery taste), superfine sugar and cut the baking time to 2 hours. It comes out perfectly! My family finished the whole cake in just one day. This cake is definitely a keeper!
I made this for Christmas. Good!
