I forgot to put in the cherries.

I have had this nagging feeling something was missing for the whole four and whatever hours it was in the oven, I've just gone to the cupboard to sort out tea and there they were laughing at me!

Should I make another one or will feeding it with cherry brandy help? smile

Soak the cherries in brandy for about a week. Dry out and dip in chocolate and use to decorate the cake - SO you don't miss out grin

I did similar a couple of years ago. I weighed out everything into bowls before cooking (so that I wouldn't leave anything out grin) and then when it was all mixed, in tin and in the oven I started cleaning up the worktop. Found a weighed out bowl of dried fruit (about a 1/3 of the total fruit meant for the cake) behind the cook book stand! So annoying. It was fine though.
