After Valerie's, highly successful Orange Chiffon Cake making session, join her again to make THE BEST DARK FRUIT CAKE YOU EVER ATE! Or the best Christmas presents for friends and family
This recipe will make three eight inch cakes or equivalent. Prepare the pans in advance as follows: Line bottom and sides of cake pans (spring form pans are the best however I have also used a bread loaf pan) with tin foil and spray with butter flavoured cooking spray.
You will also need cheesecloth and parchment paper for wrapping the cakes when they are done. (Dollar store has them)
(You can purchase the burnt sugar at any West Indian store or you can use Gravy Browning.)
RUM: I usually pour 1 cup of dark rum over my fruit once it has been steamed. In order to save time, I would suggest that you steam the raisins in advance and let the rum soak in the raisins.
