Fine have baked it a couple of times. Quite a heavy cake.

I have made this many times.I usually only soak the fruit for 3 to 4 hours.It keeps well and freezes if you want to.My family love it.

And you can use made-up coffee instead of the orange juice if you want, plus add spices, nuts, etc.

I've made it many times with variations e.g. soak the fruit in coffee or cold tea or alcohol. Add whatever spices, essences you have. I have found it very successful.
