Light fruit cake. Deliciously spicy and just a little crumbly. N.B: this mix is rather wet and required almost doubling the bake time. Sprinkle some demerara sugar on top, whilst the cake is still warm, for a lovely sugary crust.
Mary Berry's Victorian Christmas cake recipe: not a fan of the dark, dense Christmas cakes covered in icing? Mary Berry's Victorian version is lighter in texture and gorgeously decorated with nuts and dried fruits.
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.
