About this recipe: These wonderful fruit cakes are the perfect Christmas treat, which can be enjoyed anytime of the year. They are packed with fruit, nuts and spices.
This was gloriously moist. I ran out of walnuts and cherries but the recipe was robust to substitutions. One issue: I suspect the apple sauce has compromised some of this fruit cake's legendary longevity , I will be freezing mine to be on the safe side. Personally I will go easier on the cloves when I make this recipe again but it was delicious nonetheless! - 29 Mar 2015
