Google Nigella's Chocolate fruit cake - it is simply devine.It can be made in a 23cm tin and is a good height - from memory, the recipe says 20cm tin but I find this just toooo high.The recipe has prunes as a base - but please don't be put off.It is one of the nicest fruit cakes I've tried.

This recipe was used 20 years ago for our wedding cake, and I have made it each year since as a xmas cake. Can be doubled or tripled as required.

15 oz tin crushed pineapple and the juice
1 lb fruit
1 t baking soda
1 t mixed spice
4 oz butter
2 c plain flour
2 t baking powder
2 eggs - well beaten

Bring to the boil; butter, sugar, pineapple, fruit, baking soda and spice.

Boil for 3 mins. Cool.

Add beaten eggs and mix together.

Add flour and baking powder and mix together.

Cook in moderate oven for 1.5 hours, leave in the oven for 10 mins after cooking.
