This traditional Scottish cake can be doubled up as a Christmas fruit cake. It's a rich, well-flavoured fruit cake, which is simple to make. Enjoy for afternoon tea.
You forgot to say when to add the sugar! So the butter separated and the mix wouldn't cream. I guess the sugar should have been added to the butter. As beginners in the cake making department we had no idea. Had to look up another Dundee cake recipe to correct your error. Not impressed. Hope it cooks ok. - 23 Dec 2013
My Mother was born in Scotland and raised in Ireland and used to make this lovely cake for us when we were children. How we loved it! Now that I am a grandma myself I will make Dundee cake for my grandchildren and set up a lovely tea party. Can't wait. Thanks for putting up this beautiful recipe. - 14 Dec 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
