    EliteTwig's Note:

    A good old English Recipe, ideal for those who are not keen on the rich, bitty darl traditional Christmas Cake. This was a first time for me, so I went for a lighter, more golden and less bitty but fruity Christmas Cake recipe from my nan, who is enjoying Christmas not on thie earth.
