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 loves this cake so I bake one regularly. As he is borderline diabetic, I add very little brown sugar and a large spoonful of treacle. It is absolutely delicious and doesn't last long. - 06 Aug 2017
