Recipe Review

21st December 2020


A very nice recipe for this Irish fruitcake. Personally, I'd like it to have a bit more depth - some whole wheat flour might be nice, or a touch of molasses or dark brown sugar. But on the whole, with a bit of butter, it's a delightful snack.

(I also think I might prefer the recipe for "fruity tea loaf", which has a little more dough and a little less fruit. I mentioned this to my wife, and she gave me a confused look, and explained slowly, as if to a child, that the ideal fruitcake should have just enough bread to keep the fruit together. Well, to each their own.)
