This is the cake I remember and love from my childhood in the UK. I buy several every Holiday Season. One request: could you make it organic?
This is a really good fruitcake - devoid of all the over-sugared candied fruits that generic ones have, it tastes really rich (and wasn't just raisins but figs, etc.). However, it was a little dry for my taste - something that you can rectify by sprinkling a little brandy or bourbon on it and rewrapping it. We were disappointed that it took 2 weeks and didn't arrive until after Christmas but it's still quite good.
Too many raisins though moist and flavorful…a bit of a sour aftertaste that was different. I prefer more candied fruit and nuts, with less raisins and a heavier richness. Fun to try, however!
The price tag on it was different than the invoice.
This is a MUST for every holiday!
Perfect gift for those who think they don't like fruitcake. And, even more perfect for those that live fruitcake. This perfect cake is yummy with coffee or perfect with a great Port. It will become a tradition for your holiday .
