031-15981Its that time of year again when Gr-Grandma Hopcraft’s Christmas cake recipe gets an airing!  I try to get this done in the last week of October because this is a Victorian fruit cake that requires a good six weeks to mature.

This because Peter’s birthday comes just 2 weeks before Christmas and he does love a rich fruit cake. The only difference between his birthday cake and the Yule variety is that it usually takes the guise of a Dundee cake (he doesn’t like icing).
