About this recipe: This recipe is a MUST for rum lovers! If you don't like rum, then substitute another spirit, like brandy.
This recipe gives enough fruit for two lots of baking, so just use half of it. Then, you have enough ready for the next time ;-)
I have just soaked the fruit - this is similar to a cake I used to make about 20 years ago and lost the recipe. I'm confused by the cooks note - does it mean use half the fruit for this recipe or does it mean halve all the ingredients and make two cakes. Appreciate feed back on this. Many thanks - 10 Dec 2011
I want to make this as my wedding cake and have just soaked all the fruit but I'm very confused about the cook's note at the bottom. Should I use all of the soaked fruit after the two week soaking period or should I only use half but keep the rest of the ingredients at the same quantities? I don't want to mess this up! - 22 May 2012
