For the fruit mixture
175g chopped glace cherries (presoak in hot water for a minute to remove syrup)
175g chopped mixed peel
3 tablespoons Drambuie
Far the cake
275g butter at room temperature
275g soft brown sugar
6 eggs beaten
1 tablespoon black treacle
200g wholewheat flour
4 whole rutmeg grated
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon powdered cloves
1/4 teaspoon powdered mace
75g chopped nuts (walnuts brazils or any kind)
3 tablespoons drambuie
You will need a 25.5cm round cake tin greased and lined with double greaseproof paper and also a double thickness of brown paper tied round the outside of the tin.
The night before you make the cake assemble the fruit mixture in a bowl sprinkle the Drambuie over and mix well.
Then cover the whole lot and leave to soak overnight.
Next day pre heat oven to gas mark 1 275F 140 C.
In your largest mixing bowl begin the cake by creaming the butter and sugar together until pale light and fluffy.
Then beat in the eggs a little at a time (about a dessertspoon) until completely incorporated.
Then mix in the black treacle.
Next fold in the flour bran and spices and after that the fruit mixture and nuts.
Finally fold in 3 more tablespoons of Drambuie and then spoon the mixture into the prepared tin.
Level the surface and place a double square of greaseproof paper with a small hole in the centre (about the size of a 5p piece) over the cake and bake it in the oven on a low shelf for 4 1/4 hours.
Allow to cool before taking it out of the tin.
It keeps very well in an airtight tin and tastes better if its kept a few days.
