About this recipe: This lovely Christmas cake is packed with fruit and flavour, yet doesn't need any aging. The cake will provide a fantastic blank canvas upon which you can get creative with Christmas cake decorations.
If you want to stop the cake from going hard around the edges, grease and line the tin as usual, the wrap two layers of brown paper around the OUTSIDE of the tin, tied with string and cook as usual, it may take a bit longer to cook but its worthwhile..... - 26 Oct 2015
