this is a great recipe, went down a treat when a load of my friends came over for coffee, and have lots left over for pudding for the kids. It's very dense without being stodgy, and tastes lovely. I used frosen summer fruits as thats all I had. I did need to cook it for about 2 and half hours. the recipe made me nervous at first as there were such a lot of ingredients. Will make it again for sure.
