The Classic Christmas Cake. I hadn't made a Christmas cake since high school (a verrrryyy long time ago!) Found this recipe and the cake turned out beautifully. Make around a month before Christmas and feed it with brandy every couple of days, alternating top and bottom of cake. Delicious!

It's never too early to plan some Holiday baking with this Old English Dark Fruit Cake - a decades old recipe for a moist, rich, dark fruit cake chock full of dried fruit and crunchy pecans. A holiday must-have.
