This recipe I am handing down to you is from my great-grandmother from (SCOTLAND), and I am 71 yrs old so you know this is an old time recipe. I baked it for my grandfather on his 75th birthday and when I had it all mixed it seemed so heavy, but I baked it and it came out of the oven just as heavy and I was so afraid I had done something wrong but he said it was considered to be like a heavy fruit cake and it was as good as hers which pleased me very much.

Will keep up to 6 months. As for the 6 mo. it keeps, we have never kept it that long as it is a great gift giver for friends and family.
