Delia's Light Christmas Cake
This year I'm having a change and making Delia's Light Christmas Cake, rather than the rich traditional fruit cake. I normally keep the rich fruit cake for months and am eating it at Easter, but how long can I keep the light fruit cake for?
A light Christmas cake doesn’t mature like a rich fruit cake but as the proportion of fruit is still quite high it does keep longer than something like a cherry or Dundee cake.
We usually eat it within 3 weeks. It will freeze very well if you want to make it sooner.
