    Tropical christmas cake recipe

    Step 1
    Combine the Grand Marnier, pineapple, apricot, cherry, mango and ginger in a large bowl. Set aside for 1 hour to soak.

    Step 2
    Meanwhile, to make the pineapple flowers, preheat oven to 180ºC. Line 2 baking trays with non-stick baking paper. Place pineapple on the trays. Sprinkle with sugar. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until slightly crisp. Set aside for 2 minutes to cool slightly. Remove from trays. Pinch the core to shape each slice into a flower. Set aside on trays to cool completely.

    Step 3
    Reduce oven temperature to 160ºC. Brush a 7.5cm-deep, 22cm (base measurement) round cake pan with melted butter. Line with non-stick baking paper. Use an electric beater to beat butter in a small bowl until soft. Add caster sugar. Beat until pale and creamy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the lemon curd and vanilla. Transfer to a large bowl.

    Step 4
    Mix the combined flour and mixed spice in a bowl. Use a large metal spoon to fold the flour mixture and coconut milk, in alternating batches, into the egg mixture. Fold in the fruit mixture. Spoon into prepared pan and smooth the surface. Tap the pan on the bench to settle the mixture. Place on a baking tray. Bake for 2 hours 20 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Cover the surface with a clean tea towel. Set aside in pan on a wire rack to cool overnight.

    Step 5
    Whisk the egg white in a large bowl until frothy. Whisk in icing sugar, 1-2 tablespoons at a time, until smooth and glossy. Whisk in the lemon juice until mixture reaches pouring consistency. Place the cake on a serving plate. Pour over the icing, allowing it to drip down the side. Set aside until set. Arrange the pineapple flowers on top. Top with cachous and dust with icing sugar.
