Rich, moist, fruity and fragrant with brandy, this moist Christmas cake is best served with a cup of tea or a mug of good coffee. The fruit mixture can be used as a base for puddings or a filling for mince pies.
It doesn't feel quite like Christmas without this classic dessert on the table. Individual layers of cake, custard and jelly make up this lovely English dessert. Refrigerate for at least three hours before serving, to allow all the elements to set.
