This Christmas cake keeps very well and stays moist. You can use sherry instead of brandy if you prefer, it changes the taste a little.

A Christmas fruit cake where you don't soak the fruit beforehand but you do have the option of spooning over a few tablespoons of brandy every week until you are ready to ice and decorate your cake.

This is a very simple cake to make. I bought my fruit mix and orange juice from the supermarket.

I started making this Christmas cake when I was 20, and have made it every year since. I try to make it in November, so it has a minimum of one month to be fed with plenty of booze to make it super moist and delicious! The alcohol acts as a natural preservative too, allowing her to be enjoyed right into New Years.

This is a simple fruit cake especially for people (like me) who are not very organised. It is quick and easy but tastes delicious.

This is a great fruit cake that is cooked in a ring tin giving the impression of a wreath. Includes ingredients beyond the standard fruit cake including dates, pineapple and coconut.

This is a family recipe we make at Christmas. As a nice variant, try adding 1/2 teaspoon almond essence to the icing. Almond and chocolate go so well together!

A recipe I was given by a friend, it is a great summer Christmas cake or for those who do not like the traditional fruit cakes.

I first made this boiled fruitcake recipe for Christmas but now I use it all year round. I have made errors and forgot ingredients and it is very forgiving, I haven't made one I can't eat yet.
