The aroma of this fruit cake, when it comes out of the oven, should be bottled and sold for millions. Bake it if you are selling your house and want the viewer to whip out their cheque book!
Good for a substitute Christmas cake. Decorate top with peeled whole nuts, like pecans, walnuts and almonds, interspersed with green and red cherries. You can dip the nuts in some caramel to gloss and flavour them. Wrap in satin green ribbon (coz it's Irish) and devour!
