        Step 1

        Combine the sultanas, cherries, peel, apricot, almonds, ginger, liqueur and brandy in a glass or ceramic bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside for 8 hours or overnight to macerate.
        Step 2

        Preheat oven to 150°C. Brush a deep, square 18cm (base measurement) cake pan with melted butter to lightly grease. Line the base and sides with 2 layers of non-stick baking paper.
        Step 3

        Place apple, sugar, eggs, egg whites and orange rind in a bowl. Use a whisk to mix until combined. Add fruit mixture and use a wooden spoon to mix well. Sift over combined flours and stir until combined.
        Step 4

        Spoon cake mixture into prepared pan. Tap the pan on the benchtop to settle mixture and smooth the surface. Arrange the extra cherries and almonds over the surface in a flower pattern. Bake in oven for 2 hours or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.
        Step 5

        Remove cake from oven. Pour the extra liqueur over the cake. Wrap the pan in 2 clean tea towels and set aside to cool completely. Turn the cake out onto a wire rack. Cut into slices to serve.
