        Step 1

        Combine sultanas, currants, raisins, mixed peel, glacé cherries and rum in a large bowl. Cover and set aside, stirring occasionally, for 2 days to macerate.

        Step 4

        Stir the almonds into the fruit mixture. Add the fruit mixture to the butter mixture with the combined sifted flours and spices. Stir until well combined. Spoon into prepared pan. Bake for 2 hours or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean. Remove cake from oven. Wrap the pan in a tea towel and set aside to cool completely.
