I make a cake sort of using delias creole christmas cake recipe. I soak loads of dried fruit and nuts in rum, then I make a basic cake mix, equal weights of eggs, flour, butter, brown sugar. Then I mix the two together and bake. If you substituted ground almonds instead of flour would that work? or use a flourless cake recipe for the cake bit. My cake is three quarters fruit and nuts and a quarter cake.
You can use what you like. I use glace cherries, sultanas, dates, apricots, glace ginger, almond, pecans and walnuts.I just tip them in, not weigh them. I have to make the cake. hubby is allergic to brazils. It gets a bit dodgy this time of year. Epi pens on standby.
