Come October every year, Grandma's Christmas fruit cake recipe is lovingly mixed, baked and fed with alcohol, then decorated for the holiday. Known in the family as Grandma's farty cake, due to its rich fruit content, it is an essential part of the festivities.
Sadly Jean passed away four years ago, but the recipe was passed on to two of her grand-daughters who now continue the tradition. It is too good, however, to keep to ourselves, so I wanted to share it so you and your family can enjoy it too.
Where the recipe that Grandma used originated is unknown, but her typed out recipe sheet shows evidence of the number of times it has been used with spills and splashes all over it. It has now been scanned and a copy printed out for use each year, to preserve it
