This a really good down-home style, back to basics pound cake that my whole family enjoys! This recipe was handed down to me with the stipulation of placing the cake in a cold oven, and it turns out perfectly every time.
Dundee Cake Recipe - Dundee cake is a traditional Scottish cake that dates back to the nineteenth century. It is a basic fruit cake that uses sultanas and raisins and is flavoured with lemon peel. What I like about this recipe is that you can use whatever dried fruits you like including apricots, cherries and blackcurrants (obviously if you do, it won’t be a Dundee cake anymore).
