This is another family tradition recipe that has been passed down to me. It's so easy and totally delicious that you'll want to make this over and over again. The recipe technique for this boiled fruit cake makes an exquisite moist cake. I hope you enjoy as much as everyone has in our family.
This year I have decided to use this recipe as the base for my Christmas cakes! Try adding marzipan and icing sugar for the complete finish.
So easy to make, rich and moist wowed my husband with it. So tasty. I used demerera sugar and added glace cherries. - 02 Apr 2016
Absolutely beautiful cake, I have made this a few times now for myself, friends and family. (now they want more and more). last time I sprayed it with rum whilst still warm from the oven and have been asked to make it for my local pub to go on the xmas menu. thank you Birchlings for a wonderful recipe. - 16 Oct 2016
My husband is in hospital recovering from a stroke. I took a slice of the cake in for him and he promised to eat it later! He did. He phoned me and said that he intended to eat a tiny bit because he had promised me, but ate it all and said it was the best cake he had ever tasted! I have now made 4 over the past 2 weeks and am receiving rave reviews. Thank you. A beautiful cake. Have you ever tried to freeze it? I would like to try as could easily make several at once.
