About this recipe: With its two key ingredients - rum and butter - this Christmas cake recipe ought to be a hit. This is less dense and more cake-like than many Christmas cake recipes. It has become a favourite of my friends and family at Christmas, and is delicious by itself, or covered with a layer of marzipan and icing.
I made this lovely cake for Christmas and another one for New Year and a few more for the children to take for packed lunches. That can be one of the five portion a day of fruit . - 02 Jan 2010
