    I have made this twice now, and it is absolutely fantastic, Julia, can you tell me does this keep for long, I made one today, doubled the recipe for a Christmas Cake, its got all the booze in it lol and on it … if I freeze it would it keep or should I just wrap it and keep it in a container? thanks so much for all your recipes, I have found so many on your site and they are all DELICIOUS 🙂

    I found this recipe on Low Carb Diabetic. Surely 20 minutes is nowhere near long enough for a fruit cake. A normal Christmas cake would be in the oven for about 2½ hours. I have this cake in the oven at the moment and after 20 minutes it is still a wet as when it went in. I have now added another hour but I’ve a feeling even that may not be enough. Should this say 2 hours or 2hours 20 minutes? Help needed fast or I am about to waste a lot of ingredients, thank you.

      Apologies for not getting back to you sooner and i hope you did get a good outcome! I have made this cake several times and it has never taken several hours to bake! Please update me with how long it took to bake. I know that ovens are all different when it comes to heat. I also realise that traditional fruit cakes take several hours to cook, however this is a much small and less moist mix.
