  1. This recipe is fantastic and my boyfriend loves it. I used mixed dried fruit, sultanas, glacé cherries, cranberries and mixed peel as my dried fruit content and added some crushed walnuts. Added a small dash of vanilla extract, cinnamon, mixed spice, ground ginger and golden syrup instead of treacle. Will be making this for people as gifts. Thanks for sharing this lovely recipe
