I wonder what is being done to these fruitcakes? Mine is loads of fruit and a little bit of cake mix to bind it, slowly cooked for 4 hours. It's so moist and delicious. Lasts for months if necessary, though I'm never organized enough. And please stop maligning my beloved mince pies. I adore them, the crumbly pastry mixes so beautifully with the filling. Yum, sadly I don't think we have any left, I better go shopping.
