I have made this cake many many times and it has been great. Last Xmas and again this year the cake failed. It looks like it has too much liquid or butter... the cake was baked until it was completely done but when I cut into it looks greasy.

This is a good cake, but personally, I wanted it to have more character, to be more like a brandy fruit cake. So I soaked some dried fruits in the brandy, then chopped them up and added them to the batter and used real lemon and orange zest. After it baked, I also poured two shots of brandy over the top, and two more after I flipped it. It got raves after that.

This cake is a fragrant delight! I made a half-recipe, and cooked it in a 6-cup bundt pan for 50 minutes until a toothpick came out clean. My house smelled like a beautiful flower after I made this cake. The texture was at once crumby and velvety-moist. I added a little bit of extra apricot brandy, and I put the full teaspoon of the lemon and orange extracts even though I halved the recipe in all other respects. I can totally picture someone like Emily Post serving this cake at a 50's dinner party! I will definitely make it again!
