Ingredients

  • 100 g butter
  • 1 cup raw caster sugar
  • 140 g apple puree
  • 500 g mixed fruit (including prunes, dates, any type of fruit you like)
  • 1 cup mashed cooked pumpkin
  • 2 tspn cinnamon
  • 2 tspn mixed spice
  • 2 x eggs
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 cup wholemeal flour
  • 1 tspn baking powder

Method

1. Melt butter with sugar and apple puree over a low heat in a saucepan big enough to mix all ingredients. Take off the heat and add in the pumpkin and cinnamon/mixed spice and then the dried fruit.
2. Leave to cool about 10-15 minutes.
3. Add in the beaten eggs and stir well. Then sift in the flour and baking powder. Mix thoroughly as you don’t want to find any pockets of flour.
4. Line a square baking tin 20x20cm lined with 2 layers of paper.
5. Bake in a preheated 170C/340F oven for at least 50 minutes.
6. Remove cake from oven and if you want to use Brandy then pour about ¼ cup over the cake. Leave to cool in the tin.
