Everyone Loves This Fruitcake

Ah, the maligned fruitcake. Many store-bought varieties, stuffed with unrecognizable candied bits, deserve their bad reputation—but not these wonderful cakes, made with a generous serving of dried fruit and candied orange peel in a light batter. There's only one trick: buy the best-quality, moist dried and candied fruit you can afford.

I followed all the steps exactly and came up with burnt fruitcake. How can you bake for up to an hour not to talk of 1hr 40 minutes at 375 oven temperature
