I love Delias light glacé fruit cake from original Xmas book but how long will it keep before using ?
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.
We don’t generally ‘feed’ it but you can ‘feed’ it a couple of times with 2 – 3 teaspoons of brandy if you like.
