m41, the following recipe was posted on TM (thanks to momma1) quite a long time ago and with it an added note that it is "very like Ernest Adam's Light Fruitcake".

1½ tbsp cornflour
1 cup each ofcold waterandsugar
225g butter
½ tsp each ofalmond essence,lemon essence,orange essenceandvanilla essence
3 eggs
3 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
450g sultanas

Boil the cornflour and water until thick, then cool.
Cream the butter, sugar and essences, then add the eggs, one at a time.Sift the flour, baking powder and coat sultanas with a few spoonsful.Add the remaining flour and baking powder alternately with the cornflour mixture to the creamed mixture.Lastly add the sultanas and pour the mixture into a paper-lined cake tin.
Bake at170°Cfor1½ hours.

Hope that helps.:-))

My very old recipe is the same except custard powder is used instead of cornflour.
