It has been a week sence I made these cakes. These cakes do get better with age. They are a little on the dry side.I have them soaking in grape juice. Unable to get currents so I used 3 extra cups of dates instead and I am not sorry I did the extra dates worked out very well. Added 1/4 tsp cloves, 1/4 tsp ginger,1/4 tsp nutmag and cut back to 1/4 tsp mace. A lot of work!!! But it was worth it.
make this 4 batches of this recipe every year for Christmas presents for friends and family, and it is well received. Instead of orange juice, I substitute double amount of Cointreau.
Very good. Long to make but well worth it. I added extra cherries. Delicious
