At the weekend I suddenly decided I was in the mood to make a cake. I wanted to do something a bit different from the normal sponge or fairy cakes that I usually make so I decided I was going to make a Dundee Cake. A Dundee Cake is a fruit cake and given the snowy weather outside I thought this would be ideal with a cup of tea.
Fruit Cakes are easy to make but they do take a bit more time than sponge cakes. They need to be cooked for a couple of hours and the tin needs to be wrapped in newspaper to stop it burning, so be prepared for mouthwatering smells wafting though your kitchen. They are definitely worth the effort as they are very tasty.
This is the recipe I followed.
This is how mine turned out and I have to say it was delicious.
