Step by step

Get ahead
Stored in an airtight container, panforte will keep for weeks
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas 4. Generously oil an 18cm square nonstick loose-bottomed tin and line the base with edible wafer paper. Scatter the almonds and hazelnuts on a baking tray and toast in the oven for 5-7 minutes, or until lightly golden. Lower the oven temperature to 150°C, fan 130°C, gas 2. Cool the nuts, then chop with the pistachios and tip into a large bowl. Add the chopped dried fruit and mix well. In another small bowl, mix the spices, flour, cocoa and a pinch of salt. Add to the dried fruit and nuts and mix until thoroughly combined.
  2. In a medium pan, stir the honey and sugar over a low heat until the sugar has dissolved. Bring slowly to the boil, then bubble for 2 minutes.
  3. Remove from the heat, pour into the fruit and nut mixture and quickly mix with a large spoon. Spoon into the tin and level the surface. Bake for 1 hour 10 minutes, then leave to cool in the tin. Once cold, run a palette knife around the edge of the tin and ease out the panforte. Cut into squares with a sharp knife and dust with icing sugar to serve.
