Is this the recipe you're wanting svx1? It's thanks to TM's momma1.

CUTTING CAKE – "Very Like Ernest Adam’s Light Fruitcake"
1½ tbsp cornflour
1 cup each of cold water and sugar
225g butter
½ tsp each of almond essence, lemon essence, orange essence and vanilla 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 at 170°C for 1½ hours.

Hope that helps. :-))

Hi 245sam,yes absolutely and thanks to momma1 my little secret is I add cherries to it the ones you buy at gilmores in the big jars and they are the ones that they use in cocktail drinks it makes the cake super delicious!
