I am new to baking fruit cakes, and this cake was not done after 1 hour. I recommend baking for 3.5 hours, but maybe that's my oven. The instructions also do not say to invert the cake on a cooling rack after about 5 minutes cooling in the pan, especially if you do not line the pan with parchment paper. If the cake cools completely in the pan (and you've only greased and floured) there is a chance that it will break apart when the pan is inverted. That said, I have yet to taste the cake after it mellows for a couple weeks. I'm hoping it will taste ok!
