Ingredients

  • 175g golden marzipan
  • 125g mixed dried fruit
  • 275g self-raising flour
  • 225g soft butter, plus extra to grease
  • 125g caster sugar
  • 100g light brown sugar
  • zest of 1 orange, plus 1 tbsp juice
  • 75g ground almonds
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • seeds from 8 cardamom pods, ground
  • 1½ tsp ground mixed spice
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp fine sea salt
  • 5 large eggs
  • 30g flaked almonds
  • icing sugar, to dust

Step by step

How to store
Keep in an airtight container for up to 4 days, or freeze individual squares, ready to defrost as needed.
  1. Chop the marzipan into small dice, then spread out on a plate and pop in the freezer to chill (this stops it melting in the oven when baked).
  2. Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas 4. Grease a 20 x 30cm traybake tin and line it with non-stick baking paper.
  3. Toss the mixed dried fruit in 1 tablespoon of the flour and set it aside (to help prevent the fruit sinking through the cake batter).
  4. Place the remaining ingredients, except for the flaked almonds and icing sugar, in a large bowl. Beat for 2-3 minutes with an electric mixer until combined.
  5. Add the cold diced marzipan to the bowl of mixed dried fruit and toss to combine before folding it all into the cake mixture. Spoon the mixture into the prepared tin, then level it out and scatter the flaked almonds over the top.
  6. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown and springy to the touch. Leave to cool completely in the tin. Carefully remove from the tin, dust with icing sugar and cut into squares.
