Mulled Wine Fruit Cake

    2 hours 20 minutes

    I make this at Christmas but you could make it any time. It is lovely with no icing etc, kids demolish it in no time. You can place almond halves, whole cherrys etc at the bottom of the pan for decoration. Great to freeze and have ready for those surprise occasions. Prenzels is a New Zealand made product.

    Otago, New Zealand
