Oh how I miss it ---- or do I?

I recently read an article which mentioned Dundee Cake.

I salivated at the memory of such a rich fruit cake.

I want some  -  or do I?   Memory is tricky.


I am not very fond of American made cakes which all too often are very spongy, with a sickly sweet frosting.

But I remember my mother's rich fruit cakes, and the store bought Dundee Cake.

Here's a bit about the latter:

Despite all the American Christmas jokes about the fruit cakes which are passed on from generation to generation, I am a fervent fan of fruit cake.

I am about to order (on line) a genuinely  Scottish make Dundee Cake.

I'll let you know if it is as good as my memory tells me.
