Recipe
1
Start by soaking 500 grams of mixed dried fruits (raisins, currants, cherries, cranberries, apricots, dates) in 200 ml of dark rum for at least 24 hours.
2
Preheat your oven to 160 degrees Celsius. Grease and line a 9-inch round cake tin with parchment paper.
3
In a large bowl, mix together 250 grams of maida (all-purpose flour), 1 teaspoon of baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda, and 2 teaspoons of mixed spice powder (cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves).
4
In another bowl, cream together 200 grams of unsalted butter and 200 grams of brown sugar until light and fluffy.
5
Beat in 4 large eggs, one at a time, into the butter-sugar mixture. If the mixture curdles, add a little flour.
6
Gradually fold in the flour mixture into the wet ingredients until well combined.
7
Drain the soaked fruits (reserve the rum) and toss them in 2 tablespoons of flour. This prevents them from sinking to the bottom of the cake.
8
Fold the floured fruits and 100 grams of chopped nuts into the cake batter.
9
Pour the batter into the prepared tin and bake for about 2 hours or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.
10
Once the cake is baked, remove from the oven and while still warm, brush the top with the reserved rum.
11
Allow the cake to cool completely before removing from the tin.
