Christmas Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2009
Made this cake last christmas and with all the additions of nuts I added I am able to make two cakes of 9" pans. The reviews of this cake was endless!! Here are my changes due to my love for nuts and dislike of mix citris. I omitted the cherries. I used my home made orange rind minced fine. Doubled the (orange flaviored)currants used 3-4 cups dates. Addition to the almonds added another 4-5 cups of brazil, pecans, walnuts,hazil nuts..Doubled the seasoning. This cake for me bakes nicely within 2 1/2 hours at 250 degrees. After 2 hours I check to see how it is with a tooth pick or fine knife.
