Christmas Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2012
I’m a novice to cake making so i didn’t expect this to be such a success, especially as i only used the basic recipe as my benchmark!! i soak the fruit for about ten days & add lots of extra fruit too, such as prunes & other yummy dried fruit which may soak up the alcohol and i double the amount of cherries. After cooked i feed the cake for about 6 weeks with a good quality brandy. This is a lovely cake, the best I’ve ever tasted (even my critic mum loves it) my sister bakes as a profession and the taste is even better than hers (even if not so pretty looking!) i think i will use this recipe forever. This year ive soaked the fruit in mulled wine and tia-marie & will feed cooked cake with brandy as usual. Ive made three cakes this year! One large one for my mum Thankyou xxxxx
