How to make it

  • Combine the mixed fruit, prunes, mango or papaya pieces and candied cherries in a sauce pan. Add the brandy, rum, port, cherry brandy, apple pie spice, salt, vanilla extract, and 4 T water.
  • Bring to a boil then simmer for 15 minutes. Set the fruit mixture aside to cool.
  • Preheat the oven to 275 (130C). Grease and line (with parchment) a 9 inch round cake pan.
  • Sift the flour into a mixing bowl. Add the raw sugar, softened butter and eggs. Mix thoroughly until will combined. Gradually fold in the macerated fruit mixture.
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Do not level the surface.
  • Bake for 3 1/2 to 4 hours until cooked through. Place a sheet of wax paper over the cake after about 3 hours, if it appears to be browning too quickly.
  • Leave the cake to cool in the pan for 45 minutes, then transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely. Wrap in plastic wrap and store in an airtight pan. The cake will keep for up to 1 month.
