      This was awesome! Though mine only needed 3/4 hr cooking at 170 degrees and my oven isn't fan assisted!?! Will be making again!

      Loved this cake, it was very easy to put together and turn out wonderful (see photo)I didn't put the mixed spice in as the kids don't like it. It has been made for 3 days now and it's still in great shape, it hasn't dried out at all..I'm kind of amazed that it has lasted that long actually...could be coz of the post-it note stuck on the tin saying "lunch boxes only"!!! lol Thanks Karen..I'll definatly be making this again.

      So happy to have adopted this "orphan" for the PAC Fall '06 game. This cake is a real treat. Moister than most fruit cakes, easy to make and tastes great. Used 1/2 cup raisins and 11/2 cup mixed dried fruit cut into small pieces (that's what I had on hand). Used white sugar and next time I'll try it with brown sugar, should give it an intenser (if that is possible) flavour. The spice mix I used was a mix of cardamon, ginger, cinnamon, allspice, cloves, and a little pepper. Will certainly make again, thanks for posting.
