This is a lovely white cake with glace cherries and sultanas added for those of you who don't want to go to the trouble of making fruit cakes. This freezes well.
Used different ingredients. Used just cherries reduced orange juice to 100ml added Tablespoon of cherry brandy replaced 25g of sugar with a tablespoon of golden syrup made a slightly stickier cake to marzipan & ice for an anniversary - 17 Nov 2010
The original cake is really beautiful, my friend wanted a none maderia cherry cake as her ruby anniversary cake so I altered the recipe slightly to accomodate her. - 17 Nov 2010
Lovely tasting cake. Mine was a wee bit overdone, will reduce cooking time next time - and there will be a next time! Also, used 200g cherries (it was all I had!) which was fine, but will use maybe 50g less sultanas too - prefer more "cake" than fruit, just personal preference however. Really nice. - 09 Dec 2010
