Hi making my friends wedding cake and she wants one of the tiers to be fruit cake.  I tried an online recipe and it was cooked on the outside and doughy on the centre and did not cut well at all. So that became a present for my dad to eat.

any recipies really welcome!!!

thanks in advance x

What size cake?

I  use the recipe used for my own wedding cake 36 years ago (updated for metric measurements).  It's abolutely glorious. It's still published in Good Housekeeping cookery books & has a chart for different sizes/shapes; maybe your local libray will have a copy.

I have adapted it - I substitute about 10% of flour with ground almonds and use more lemon juice than the recipe states adding all of it to the fruit to soak overnight. 

Post again if you can't get hold of a copy.
