A traditional cake, which is still baked throughout Cornwall and Devon. Unfortunately, they are not distributed around the UK for the rest of us to enjoy. This recipe will show you how to make your own deliciously rich, orange-tinged, yeasted fruit cake at home. Enjoy for afternoon tea or elevenses.
The cakes will slightly sink in the middle and will appear very moist. This is normal.
I live in Cornwall so make this regularly. Unfortunately in your recipe you have omitted when to add the saffron infused milk to the mixture! I add this when I pour in the yeast mix.. Hope this helps, Claire x - 05 Jun 2015
This is a recipe to share. It is ideal for easter and I agree should be shared across the country. - 08 Apr 2014
