Yes to all your replies on my burnt Christmas cake.
Hello Sue McGloin,
Thank you for coming back to me regarding your previous post.
Your Christmas cake was most like burnt because you used a fan setting.
All of Delia’s recipes with an eclectic oven temperature have been tested in a conventional oven, using top and bottom heat.
If you have a fan oven, we advise that you should reduce the given temperature by 20 degrees.
However as the classic Christmas cake is baked on a lower shelf I would reduce it to 115 degrees.
As fan ovens cook much faster I would have a cautions peek at 3 hours the first time you bake this recipe in your oven at this temperature on a fan setting.
