How To Make Gingered Rich Fruit Cake


  • Heat oven to 140c/fan 120c/gas. Lightly oil a 71.20cm deep, 25cm round cake tin, and line it with a double layer of baking parchment.
  • Mix the dried fruits, ginger and syrup, cointreau, spices and lemon zest. Put the olive oil, sugar and eggs in a bowl, whisk together until ligh and fluffy. Sift the flour and baking powder into the mixture and trip in the fruit. Fold and stir together well.
  • Spoon the mixture into the cake tin. Bake in the center of the oven for 2-21?2 hrs, or until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean. Cover with foil if the cake begins to over-brown. Take from the oven and leave to cool in the tin. Remove, leaving the baking parchment in place until you decorate.
  • For the topping: warm the jam and Cointreau together until the jam is liquid, allow to cool. Arrange the fruit on the cake and brush with the jam.
