Ok, I checked the back entries (ooerr! Sorry been watching too much Blackadder) and I couldn't find what I am looking for. Primarily I want a rich fruit cake recipe that can be kept without going off and matured for a month or so before christmas in some brandy or whisky. I have made one before, but that had eggs in it, and I'm not sure if egg replacer will work in a rich fruit cake. If someone has a recipe then I would be very grateful. I have family coming to us this year and I don't want Dad moaning about dry and unmatured christmas cake. Thanks :) Oh, and if anyone has a christmas pudding recipe things (ie the ones that get set on fire before eating)that would be brill.
