“A dark, rich fruit cake for wine and fruit lovers! This is a recipe I use at Christmas and for Birthdays. I prefer to use Jamaican Red Label Wine and White Rum. But you may use your Favorites....ENJOY!” - by Sharon

"I used this recipe and it came out just as I wanted it. I love it and it is just like the Christmas cake my mother bakes in Jamaica. I live in the U.K. now and I have search the internet looking for..." See more a good recipe and Sharon's is the best of them all. Although I had the fruit blended instead of having them in as they were just soaked and I have also added 1/2 bottle of red label wine, 1/2 bottle of Grace Browning and even 1/2 cup more of white rum to my cake. While baking I placed a baking tray with water below to ensure my cake remain soft."
"I'm really disappointed at this recipe. After I spent time and money, it turned out to be something completely different from what I was expecting. I ended up with so much batter, I filled up the tw..." See moreo 9-inch round cake pans the recipe asks for, plus one 9x13 rectangular pan!! When I put the cake pans in the oven, the batter started to rise nicely, but it suddently flattened, and I didn't open the oven door or did something to make it flatten. The taste is not bad, but I couldn't taste the wine or rum at all. I don't know if I did something wrong, but I read the instructions very carefully to make sure I was doing everything right. This fruitcake turned out to be a pain in the neck. "
