    A recipe that has been handed down through my family - a very nice cake to have when you want to sit down on the couch with a cup of tea. Beats bought cakes any day!

    Most rich fruit cakes are high in fat and added sugar, but this one is an exception. It's relatively low in fat, and depends mainly on dried fruits soaked in apple juice for natural sweetness. Decorated with nuts, and glacé and crystallised fruits, it makes a healthy cake that would be festive enough for Christmas.

    This is a Northern Ireland recipe given to me by my mum many years ago! You don't boil the cake, just the ingredients before you bake it.

    This moist, fruit-rich cake is so packed with flavour that you will not notice it has none of the fat of traditional recipes. Makes a great base for a Christmas or wedding cake - decorate as you like.
