Steps

1

Soak the fruits and nuts in 1 tbsp of sherry or brandy over night.

2

Place the fruits and nuts, water and butter together in a large bowl and heat until the fat has melted and the liquid is hot. This can be done on the hob or in the microwave oven. (High power for 4 – 5 minutes)

3

Allow to cool slightly, then add eggs, flour and the bicarbonate of soda. Mix well.

4

Remove the kneading blade from the bread pan and line the bottom and sides with baking parchment or a loaf tin liner.

5

Place the mixture into the bread pan, being careful to ensure that the mixture is inside the baking parchment.

6

Select bake mode and enter 1 hour on the timer.

7

After baking test with a skewer to see if the cake is cooked. If the cake does require extra time, select the bake mode again and enter a further 3- 5 minutes on the timer. If it is still just slightly sticky this will cook through during the stand period.

8

Take the bread pan out of the bread maker using oven gloves. Leave to stand for 5 – 10 minutes before removing from the bread pan and allowing to cool.

Enjoy
