I am sure I saw in a magazine recently a recipe for a traditional fruity but chocolate christmas cake. I cannot find the recipe anywhere and have no idea where I saw it. Does anyone have any idea what I am talking about or did I imagine it?

Link to recipe would be fab!

There is one in the current issue of Good Food magazine too.

I am SURE that is the one I have seen, in Good Food but I have been through the magazine four times to find it and I can't see it anywhere!
