Coles and Woolworths have had Christmas stock on display for about three weeks now, so I got stuck into things.
My recipe is a family secret but I will list the ingredients. It is based on 6 eggs. The cake is liberally sprinkled (frequently) with alcohol to enhance its keeping qualities, especially important in this climate.
|Soak the fruit for a few days.|
|I used too high a heat for the oven at the beginning. |
Use the lowest heat possible. Plan for at least 3 hours.
