Recipe of the week: Charli's Chooks Christmas cake

This is a classic fruit cake recipe. My stepmum bakes in September and feeds the cake regular doses of alcohol up to Christmas day. But most of us never plan that far ahead, and early December is a good time to prepare a festive cake. A couple of weeks still gives the flavour time to develop while closer to Christmas you will be too busy with other things.
