Dundee Cake is a light fruit cake, first made by the Scottish marmalade company, Keiller’s, in the nineteenth century. It is the perfect bake for those who yearn for a treat somewhere between a Christmas cake and a sponge – not too rich, but not overly light and airy. As with most of my creations, this recipe stays true to tradition and is decorated with concentric circles of blanched almonds

This Dundee Cake is based on the original 1700's recipe! Rich and buttery, with juicy sultanas, and the citrus sunshine of Seville orange.

Dundee cake The Dundee cake’s origins are linked with the early Scottish marmalade industry. The Keiller family – pioneering and resourceful marmalade-makers – used factory downtime to make this legend of the Scottish tea table. While the original recipe used only sultanas and lots of orange peel, these days, commercial recipes seem to favour a rich mix of vine fruits and cherries. River Cottage Baking recipes
