Advent Calendar 2012 - Fruitcake – Friend or Foe?

My Grandmother spotted this Christmas Cake recipe in a copy of Woman Magazine, and since then both my Mum and I  have used it.

The photograph is of the actual page from the magazine, which does look in rather a sorry state! The actual date is gleaned from a book review on the reverse of the recipe - 1983!

  1. wow, that actually looks very much like my recipe, a Christmas Cake in Ireland.
    I still call it that in NJ, because the word fruitcake sets some people off.

  9. Wow - very cool! I've never made a fruitcake, and the ones I've tried I haven't been much of a fan of... but maybe this one would change my mind. Thanks for sharing!

  10. I am getting ready to mix up my fruitcake tomorrow. Wish I could enlarge this recipe so I'd be sure to get the perfect cake! I sort of overcooked them last year. all were eaten none the less.
