EGGLESS RECIPE

700g (4 cups) mix fruits (consist of cherries, apricots, raisins, plums, blackcurrants)
50g (1/2 cup) glazed red cherries
50g (1/2 cup) glazed green cherries
1 tbsp orange zest
180ml (3/4 cup) whiskey (you can also use brandy, rum OR gin) OR (orange or pineapple juice for non-alcohol)

125g (1 cup) pecans, chopped
125g (1 cup) cashews, chopped

283g (2 1/3 cup) all-purpose flour or plain flour
2 tsp mixed spice **
1 ¼ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
226g (1 cup) unsalted butter, softened
225g (1 ¼ cup) light brown sugar
185g (3/4 cup) plain yogurt
1 tbsp molasses (OR jam)
2 tsp vanilla extract
1-2 tbsp orange juice (add when you feels the batter is too dry)

Instructions:

1. In a glass jug or container, add the mix fruits, glazed cherries, orange zest and alcohol (or juice for non-alcohol).
2. Soak overnight or even up to 1 week, in room temp.

On the day of baking:
3. Squeeze 1 tbsp orange juice and set aside.
4. Chop the pecans and cashews, set aside.
5. Strain the soaked mix fruits and nuts.

6. Preheat oven at 140°C/285°F.
7. Sift all the dry ingredients.
8. In a mixer bowl, add butter (softened) and sugar. Start with low speed for 1 min so that they come together. Then switch to medium speed and mix for about 5 min or until creamy, fluffy and pale.
9. Add eggs, one at a time. [for EGGLESS: add the yogurt, you may add all at one go). Mix until well incorporated.
10. Add molasses, vanilla extract and orange juice. Add 1 tbsp first. (Second tbsp after adding dry ingredients, add only if necessary like if the batter is too dry)
11. Add the sifted dry ingredients, in 2 batches. Use low speed so that no over mixing. Stop mixing as soon as the flour disappear. Do not over mix. (Add another tbsp of orange juice if needed)
12. Add in the strained mix fruits and nuts. Set the strained alcohol or juice aside for later use.
13. Pour into a 8x8x3 inch pan, greased and lined with parchment paper.
14. Cut 2 pieces of parchment papers with a hole in the middle for peeping purpose. This is to prevent the cake top from burnt and overcooked. Place these papers right on top of the cake.
15. Bake in preheated oven at 140°C/285°F for about 3.5 to 3.75 hours. Put cake on the lower rack.
I know, yes! Bake for that long. Don’t worry if the cake will dry out, it won’t as we are not finished after baking 🙂

16. Let the cake cool for 30 min.
17. Randomly poke holes on the cake using a skewer. This is for absorption later. Brush the cake with the strained alcohol or juice.
18. Wrap the cake with cling film, make sure you wrap it tight to keep moisture in the cake. Let it sit in room temp overnight or up to 2 weeks (if you’re using alcohol) TIP: the longer it sits, the better the cake will be. If you’re using juice, refrigerate after 3 days of being in room temp.
19. Occasionally unwrap and brush the cake with more alcohol or juice.
20. The cake will be ready for cutting and to serve.
