This is the kind of cake my mother or grandmother kept in a tin and "seasoned" it with Bourbon or Apricot Brandy to keep this pound cake Moist! Then after saving it she would offer it to special guests. This is a traditional British Christmas Cake!

Bourbon, or orange juice or Brandy is essential for keeping this pound cake moist! My mother used fruit flavored brandy during the holidays.
