Caramel syrup is the reason for the rich dark deep brown color and I have shown it very clearly in the video and I hope it will help you.
I have posted another fruit cake recipe; which has alcohol and also how to soak dry fruits in alcohol, you can take a look at them too. Back in December 2011, I shared a boiled fruit cake recipe and this easy fruit cake is adapted from it. Over the years I have made fruit cake countless times and have perfect it and I found that adding rich caramel syrup gives a dark color to the cake.
