candied mixed fruit
This is very yummy! Note: For those of us that can't find 'mixed spice' I found a recipe for it.
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon nutmeg
1 tablespoon allspice
2 teaspoons mace
1 teaspoon ground cloves
I made this last night and it was not very good at all. Maybe it's just because it's fruit cake?
This is a fantastic recipe,just changed a few things,ie milk instead of water brown sugar instead of white,2 tsp of mixed spice and added a cup of glazed cherries cut in half.this is now the best fruit cake ever look no further you will not find a better recipe,and so easy to make cheers.
the best yet, your recipe is the way my mother-in-law made it in ireland,and she is 91 years old, i find what happens people are intend to add other ingredints to old recipes and all they do is ruin them .you have not and it is great
Don't panic! The mixture amost filled my baking tin, and I was worried it would spill over during cooking, but it stayed in the pan. I cooked it for the time given but the top was a little over-done although the middle was just right, so next time I placed a piece of baking parchment with a small hole in the centre loosely over the top of the cake for the first hour of cooking, removing it for the last 30 minutes, and this gave a much better result. This is a great cake and already a firm favourite.
This is probably one of the better boiled fruit cakes that have come out of Ireland. I like it exactly the way it is printed and it is very good spread with real butter. Thanks again for a great simple recipe.
tried it a love it,easy an hassel free
VERY GOOD CAKE RECIPE.
I ALSO DID THIS WITH THE WATER I MADE HOT TEA AND BUT 4 OZ OF CHERRY'S
