Complete your festive celebrations with this fragrant delight
This traditional fruit cake is moist, sweet and mellow. My recipe was designed for maximum flavour and the only preservative it contains is a generous quantity of brandy!
It's lovingly made with bounteous volumes of jucy vine fruits all soaked overnight so they're bursting with deliciousness.
Baked with my own blend of winter spices, almonds and citrus zest, your cake will be matured allowing the flavours to develop and mellow so it's perfect for you to enjoy on Christmas Day.
This cake really is the very best. It's packed full of vine fruits, citrus, nuts and winter spices.
Filled with raisins, currents, sultanas and cherries all plump from a long soaking in an extremely generous quantity of brandy.
Richly fragrant with citrus and spices.
Decorated with traditional marzipan & fondant or roasted nuts.
Choose the nutty topped or fondant & marzipan coated version
My Indian customers tell me that this is very similar to plum cake. So, If you are feeling nostalgic for a slice of plum cake, why not give this a try?
One Happy customer's Google review:
