    just taken the above recipe fruit cake out of the halogen oven, following the instructions word for word, in fact cooking an extra
    40 minutes. What a disappointment, a very undercooked cake even with the time added on.
    I have cooked various foods with good results, but this time it was a disaster, a costly one.

    Very disappointing, followed the recipe closely and had the same experience. Undercooked on the inside.
    Had to microwave portions one at a time and use as desserts rather than throw it away because the ingredients cost quite a lot.

    Don’t you ever test these recipes before publishing?

      Hi Victor, I’m sorry you had this experience. It worked for us though timings can vary depending on the model of halogen oven.
