Best Christmas/fruit cake recipe I've found ever. I keep to the weights of fruit and nuts but replace the whole lot with whatever dried fruit I've got at the time due to family allergies. Also I hate candied peel so use zest of a lemon and orange instead. You can soak the fruit for as long as you like, personally I soak mine in about a cup of port for a few months before cooking and then after cooking regularly baste the cake with port and masala for a few months before eating. Have some sitting here beside me in August that is still delicious from last years 6 cake effort baked in October, the longer you soak the longer it'll keep! Delicious!!
