The recipe calls for baking the cake in a loaf pan for 1 hour at 350 degrees and checking for doneness using a toothpick, and if needed, to bake another 10 minutes. After an hour my toothpick was clean.
I put the cakes in airtight containers to baste them with brandy for two weeks, as the recipe indicates. I couldn't help myself and cut into one of the fruitcakes after two days and found the middle a bit soggy, so that now I wish I'd left them in for the additional 10 minutes.
Is there anything I can do to fix the cakes? Will re-baking dry them out? Could the microwave be useful to cook the inside? I have made 4 fruitcakes and the thought of having to toss them is extremely depressing.
Can anyone help?
Thanks in advance.
