About this recipe: This moist, fruit-rich cake is so packed with flavour that you will not notice it has none of the fat of traditional recipes. Makes a great base for a Christmas or wedding cake - decorate as you like.
This has to be one of the easiest and tastiest fruit cake recipes I've ever used. I've made it with different fruit, different sugar, more spice, different alcohol, no alcohol. It always works and always tastes good. I've made six wedding cakes using this recipe. Highly recommended. - 03 May 2015
Brilliant recipe; I used up two cans of prunes that I'd had stored in my cupboard, alongwith leftover dried fruit from the Xmas pudding I'd made a few days earlier and substituted the 6 tablespoons of brandy and 6 x milk with leftover guiness from my Xmas pud. Beautifully moist and so delicious - already passed the recipe to my work colleagues and I will definately make this again - 21 Nov 2012
Replace 250g of the mixed fruit with 250g of whole cherries, add more mixed spice than suggested and use really dark sugar. - 25 Aug 2013
