Add the batter.Bake at 180 degrees Celsius for one hour or at 200 degrees Celsius for 45 minutes. The temperature mostly depends on the type of oven you have. Insert a skewer to check if the cake is ready. If it comes out clean, take out the cake and place it on a wire rack to cool.
    Bake the cake
    Step 5 / 5 - Slice And Serve The Cake
    Carefully take the cake out from the baking tray. Slice it and serve with tea, coffee or with an assortment of snacks. This cake also goes well with vanilla ice-cream. You can also make a quick icing by beating together one cup icing sugar and one cup unsalted butter. Mix vigorously, till the mixture becomes creamy. Put it in the fridge for one hour. Now put it in the piping bag and use it to decorate the cake. If you want your icing to be colourful, you can divide this butter-sugar mixture in two parts and the add the two colours of your choice in both the parts. Put them in separate icing bags and use them to rave up your cake. You can also use gems and chocolate chips to decorate your cake.
    Slice and serve the cake

    Put 1kg mixed dried fruit, the zest and juice of 1 orange and 1 lemon, 150ml brandy or other alcohol, 250g softened butter and 200g light, soft brown sugar in a large pan set over a medium heat.

    Bring to the boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 5 mins. Tip the fruit mixture into a large bowl and leave to cool for 30 mins.

    Heat oven to 150C/130C fan/gas 2. Line a deep 20cm cake tin with a double layer of baking parchment, then wrap a double layer of newspaper around the outside tie with string to secure.

    Add 175g plain flour, 100g ground almonds, tsp baking powder, 2 tsp mixed spice, 1 tsp ground cinnamon, tsp ground cloves, 100g flaked almonds, 4 large eggs and 1 tsp vanilla extract to the fruit mixture and stir well, making sure there are no pockets of flour.

    Tip into your prepared tin, level the top with a spatula and bake in the centre of the oven for 2 hrs.

    Remove the cake from the oven, poke holes in it with a skewer and spoon over 2 tbsp of your chosen alcohol. Leave the cake to cool completely in the tin.

    To store, peel off the baking parchment, then wrap well in cling film. Feed the cake with 1-2 tbsp alcohol every fortnight, until you ice it.

    Dont feed the cake for the final week to give the surface a chance to dry before icing
