Oh thank you French Tart for bringing back a lot of memories. My mother (who has been dead for many years) loved seed cake and hers were similar to your first recipe. Even when she was in a home for special care I use to bring her one on special occasions. Certainly not a very well known cake out of England and Ireland.

I absolutely enjoy making these kinds of recipes & followed it right on down, even using a small amount of candied orange peel that I'd made up during the end-of-year holidays, along with apricot brandy (the only kind I had on hand)! A very nice change from frosted, sweet desserts! Thanks so much for sharing it! [Tagged, made & reviewed for the VIP player in the Vegetarian/Vegan Recipe Swap 18]
