How to make it

  • Preheat the oven at 180 deg C .
  • Line a loaf or 18 cm pan with baking paper ( I use foil to prevent the cake from browning )
  • Grease them .
  • Melt the butter and sugar .
  • Add the water , soda , spice and fruits .
  • Once it starts to boil , simmer 1 minute.
  • Cool it completely . ( Its important )
  • Add the well beaten egg , flour and salt .
  • Mix well and pour into the greased pan .
  • Bake for 60 mins or more until the skewer inserted comes out clean .
  • OPTIONAL :
  • Spike the cake with few tbsp of brandy every few days until it reaches the flavour you prefer .
