The ingredients for this rich fruit cake for an 8 inch round cake tin are as follows:

350g plain flour
10g mixed spice
110g ground almonds
6 eggs (medium)
250g soft dark brown sugar
250g butter
1kg dried mixed fruit (currants, sultanas, raisins)
50g mixed peel
125g glace cherries
1 lemon
1 orange
250ml dark rum (optional)

If you want to make a special cake for that special occasion, such as a Birthday or Wedding, make it a few weeks in advance and add a touch more rum from time to time. The cake will improve even more over several weeks.

A good dark rum has been used in this recipe but you can of course use a good brandy.
