Delicious fruit cake with a twist
Welcome to another yearly family favorite.

My daughter always takes a huge slice in her lunch box, so never lasts long!

This cake mixture also works well in the tins that have a hole in the centre i.e ring or Kugelhopf pan-if using one of these bake at Gas mark 4 only.

I have used Butternut squash before to replace the pumpkin if you can't wait for the pumpkins!
