Ingredients
  Mixed dried fruit 750 Gram
  Butter/Margarine 185 Gram
  Water 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Firmly packed brown sugar 1 1⁄4 Cup (20 tbs)
  Whisky 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Eggs 3 Large
  Plain flour 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Self raising flour 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Mixed spice 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Salt 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Soda bicarbonate 1⁄2 Teaspoon
Directions

Grease a deep, 20cm cake tin and line with greased brown paper or baking paper.
Set the oven at moderate, 180C (350F).
Place the dried fruit in a large saucepan with the butter, water and brown sugar.
Bring slowly to the boil, then simmer for 5 minutes.
Remove from the heat and cool until lukewarm.
Stir in the whisky and add the eggs to the mixture one at a time, beating well each time with a wooden spoon.
Sift the flours with the spice, salt and bicarbonate and stir into the mixture, combining thoroughly.
Spoon into the prepared tin and bake for 45 minutes.
Reduce the heat to moderately slow 160C (325F) and cook a further 45 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean.
Leave the cake for a minute or two in the tin, then turn out on to a wire cake rack and allow to cool before removing the paper.
Note: For Christmas, the top of the cake can be decorated with almonds before baking, or it can be iced afterwards.
