This recipe turns out perfectly if you increase the eggs to 5 -- it is not crumbly and the texture comes out as shown on the video. I substituted dried cranberries for the currants, and it was delicious. Golden raisins would probably be a good substitute as well. Tastes very much like a Christmas fruitcake.

Really disappointed. I baked the cake for 5 m less than called for and it was/is, as other reviewers noted, very crumbly. Typically, I share my baked goods with neighbors but not this time. It also has way too many currents/raisins. I will not be making this again. I will try her lemon bundt cake next.
I followed the recipe exactly and, like the other reviewer, it is definitely crumbly and barely holds together when it is sliced. The overall texture is fine and flavor is absolutely outstanding so I may make it again and add an egg to see if it will hold together a little better.
I made this recipe three times and used the Nordic bunt pain featured. The three cakes were crumbly. Such a disappointment!
