These cakes are packed with wonderful flavours... and oh so moist, they taste more like a fruitcake...also quite festive looking with the red cherries, but you don't have to just make these at holiday season, there great at any time. Note: this recipe makes two cakes, one for yourself, and one to give away, or two for yourself!
