Looks very tasty. I should try this one. Thanks for sharing this nice cake recipe. Try to check this out too Personalized Christmas Ornaments

Sounds like a fantastic cake Paul, have never been much of a fan of the traditional Christmas cake as it can be dry and tough but the high fruit content (and not just sultanas but lovely apricots, apples and pears) would make this really moreish. Interesting idea of glazing it with marmelade instead of marzipan, one could also use apricot jam I imagine?

Can see why this wouldn't last into the new year ;)

Thanks Signe, it really remains moist! The original recipe from Leiths uses apricot jam as the glaze but I prefer the more tart marmalade. Incidentally this cake is very good eaten alonside many cheeses, stilton for one!

My Mum loves to make christmas cakes but was wondering how long the glaze keeps for once on the cake? She usually makes these all year round and they last forever and was going to try to make the glaze to go but she is worried that it will go off well before the rest of the cake
