This is a pre metric measure recipe, so you will need to convert to grams unless you are like me and still have you old scales in pounds and ounces.

¾ lbButter
¾ lbBrown Sugar
1Tablespoon Golden Syrup
1/2Teaspoon Salt
1Teaspoon Cinnamon
1 Teaspoon Nutmeg
2 Teaspoon Mixed Spice
Very SmallTeaspoon Baking Soda
1 Tablespoon Rum(more or less as you like)
1 Jar Blackcurrant Jam
2x 1kg Bags Tasti Mixed Fruit
1 Packet Pecans
1 Packet Glace Cherries
1 Packet Blanched Almonds

Prepare 2 regular cake tins or be like me and use a roasting dish lined with baking paper.Cream butter and sugar, add beaten eggs and golden syrup. Sieve in flour with spices and salt and baking soda added. Add fruit and black currant jam and whatever quantity of rum. Mix well. After lifting heavy mixing container ( I have taken to using my big soup saucepan) and unloading mix into baking dish, arrange almonds, cherries and pecans in decorative pattern (or randomly) on top.Bake at 120 degrees centigrade 3 ½ to 4 hours.
