I adore rich fruit cake and I also adore marzipan, Christmas couldn’t come quick enough in my book to enjoy a slice of cake. So why I’ve never made a Simnel Cake before baffles me! On this occasion I’ve opted to use the quick and super easy Delicious Alchemy Fruit Cake Mix, I had a packet left over form Christmas and decided back then that this bake was going to be its final destination. If you have a little more time on your hands and a bigger number of tummies to fill then you can just as easily opt to make my own version of Rich Fruit Cake, but instead of using brandy use orange juice like I have here. Another super tip would be to soak your fruit overnight in orange juice, this will make the cake more moist and do away with the need to ‘feed’ the cake over several weeks.
