I have always loved rich, dark, fruit cake pictures and every Christmas I make this Dundee cake- delicious, citrusy and heavy with plump raisisns, I baked two cakes today, one for X'mas and one for my Wedding Anniversary that we are celebrating today, This cake will keep well for several days, and is very good with hot coffee.
