This Traditional Rich Fruit Cake recipe is perfect for a Christmas, birthday or wedding cake. It matures well, so make as soon as you can and feed with a tablespoon or two of brandy every week; pierce the cake all over with a cocktail stick and pour over the brandy.
The best Christmas cake recipe I have tried. It was a great success last year and I look forward to trying it again this year. I used brandy and let it mature for about 8 weeks feeding it more brandy every now and again.
