  • Serves: 8-10
  • Recipe by: Le Creuset

METHOD

  • Heat the brandy until warm. Add the mixed fruit, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, desiccated coconut, and orange juice. Allow to stand for 2 hours.
  • After 2 hours, preheat the oven to 160C fan or 180C normal. Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating between each addition.
  • Add the flour, salt, and baking powder and mix until just combined.
  • Add the brandy mixture and fold to combine thoroughly.
  • Spoon into a greased Le Creuset Bundt Cake Tin or a greased and lined 22cm Signature Round Casserole.

Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour and 20 minutes. Leave to completely cool in the tin or casserole before removing to slice.

Serve with custard, a dusting of icing sugar, and edible gold-dusted fresh, festive berries.
