The cake came out very well. I think we could try currants, and more cashew instead of dates and the cake will be more soft and moist. Thank you for posting the recipe.

My first cake, friends said tastes better than the one from shop. I made two cakes with 10" pan. First one burned because I kept the cake at the bottom of oven. kept the second one at top so came out perfect. I watched youtube videos for butter-sugar mixing. It helped me. Thank you.

This is the best Christmas cake I ever made. I only used 3 cups sugar and 3-4 lb butter. Thank you.

Missed the plum cake from India for many years and kept searching for a good recipe. Tried many others but they did not turn out too well. This was the first recipe where I got the right color and taste. Excellent and would definitely recommend it to friends. Thanks much Latha for sharing.

Hi, All This Recipe is very nice, The only difficulty was about the amount of flour and sugar. that means If they had given the amount in Lbs., that would have become nice out put. However the cake came out very excellent beyond my expectation, I was appreciated by many of my friends. I made the cake with the same amount mentioned in this site and got nearly 7kgm. Wow!!!!. Wonderful. If some one can give the amount of flour and sugar in Lbs, that would be a great help. thank you very much. Christy

EXCELLENT!!! Thats what I have to say. Never baked cake so soft and yummy. Guys, if you are looking to bake a plum cake thats perfect ...this is it! I forgot to coat the rasins,nuts with all purpose flour, and am guessing thats why the rasins and nuts settled at the bottom of the cake. Also, instead of orange rind I added orange marmalade in one of the three cakes I baked that day....it turned out great as well! We have been living on that cake....thank u

Dear frnz, many of you have the query that why do we add brandy at last!!. The receipie itself says that brandy is added for shelflife. One speciality about this particular cake is that the more you keep them in refrigerator added with brandy, the more it taste. Every x-mas i do try this cake and my neighbours wonder how i prepared it.

The reason to add alcohol is to stay soft and it works for me

Thank you so much for your recipe. You have put this together really well. Although I followed this recipe to the "T", I was dissapointed to see my cake burnt after 50 mins!!! So, one suggestion would be is to turn the temp. down to 325 F after 30 mins and then to 250 F after 40 mins till its done.
