This is a delicious Christmas fruit cake that you can make on any budget and even those fussy kids will enjoy it, this has been passed through my family and it is always a hit. you can ice it or leave it as it is.
This really was easy! I changed the recipe a little to suit the ingredients I had on hand. I only had 1 1/2 cups of orange juice and no rum essence, so I used the orange juice and added 1/4 cup of rum, as well as the brandy and almond essence. I took the advice of one of the reviewers and added spice. 1 tsp ground nutmeg, 1 tsp cinnamon and 1 tsp mixed spice. I soaked the fruit for 2 days. It was delicious, and well recieved by the relatives! - 28 Dec 2011
a wonderfully easy christmas cake to prepare. Tastes great for a cake that has little time or effort into making it!!! would suggest though perhaps adding some nutmeg and cinnamon to add that extra christmas taste/feel to it, but big thumbs up from this family!! - 11 Nov 2010
