Divine cake, Joy !! Bestever boiled fruity my family has eaten !! I made up my own mixed fruit with prunes, cranberries,peel and sultanas. The result was moist and golden and gobbled up fast !!
That looks the same as the one my mother (and I) made. Mum always used butter, but margarine suits me better now (particularly as hubby has to be careful of cholesterol) and I will try to use sugar substitute as well (for moi). Thank you so much! Beverley.
What a wonderful moist fruit cake! This was absolutely delicious, low in fat and very simple to make. I actually made the dried fruit mix at lunchtime and then continued the cake in the evening after work. I think allowing the fruit mix to rest for a few hours made the cake even moister. I also didn't use packaged mixed fruit as I don't like citrus peel) but made up my own with sultanas, currants, dried kiwifruit, dried strawberries and dried peaches. YUM!
