Jamaican Fruit Cake Recipe aka 'Jamaican Chrismus Cake'
The preparation is certainly not as difficult as you might have initially thought. In fact, not only is it super easy, it is quite simple as well - though it uses all the traditional Jamaican ingredients.

Butter and sugar are creamed till the mixture becomes light and fluffy. Next, eggs, rum and vanilla are added to the mixture, while beating continuously.
this mixture, the prepared fruit mixtures, red wine, a small amount of
rum (optional) and molasses are added.
The flour mixture is then folded into this mixture, and mixed properly to make the cake batter.
The mixture is then baked in greased baking dishes on medium high heat till it is properly baked, and a pick comes out clean when inserted.
Additional wine or rum can also be brushed onto the cake as needed to keep it moist.
