I realise that a cake made with the rubbed method is not going to be as light as a creamed method cake so the density of the cake was not a disappointment. In fact, it was reasonably light for a rubbed method cake but I was careful and didn't work the flour too much. The flavour was good too, the honey and fruit giving just enough sweetness. However, I think it could have done with more fruit. There was just a bit too much cake to fruit for a denser cake. I decided to try making it into biscotti rather than wasting it. 4 hours in a low oven and we have something that is very tasty,chewy and crunchy. Funnily enough, some it disappeared during the slow cooking. It turns out that this cake is delicious hot!
