Please does anyone have a tried and tested Christmas cake recipe that is not the usual heavy fruit cake which never gets eaten here. I was thinking of something with almonds, apricots, cranberries etc. Thank you!

I made this last year instead of Christmas cake for DH's work... it's not fruit cake though.

The icing is really rich, a small slice goes a long way.

I've made this too, it was really good.

I've made the Delia one for years but last year switched to Mary Berry. My whole family said it was the nicest cake I have ever made!
