    Certosino desserts recipes
        Step 1

        Preheat oven to 160°C. Lightly grease a 24cm springform pan, then line the base and side with baking paper. Sift flour with cocoa, bicarbonate of soda and spices into a large bowl. Add glace fruit, chocolate, citrus zests and nuts, then, using your hands, rub chopped ingredients through the dry ingredients to distribute evenly.
        Step 2

        Place wine, sugar, butter and 440g (1 1/4 cups) honey, in a small saucepan. Cook, stirring, over low–medium heat for 5 minutes or until sugar dissolves and butter melts. Remove from heat, then cool mixture for 10 minutes.
        Step 3

        Make a well in the flour mixture, add honey mixture and stir until well combined. Spoon mixture into pan, and, using an offset spatula or the back of a spoon, smooth the top evenly. To make topping, cut assorted glace fruit into large pieces and arrange over cake.
        Step 4

        Bake for 1 hour or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out almost clean (it will still be a little sticky in the middle). Cool in the pan for 10 minutes.
        Step 5

        Place remaining 90g (1/4 cup) honey in a small saucepan over medium heat and bring to a simmer. Drizzle honey over cake in the pan, then leave to cool completely in the pan.
        Step 6

        Remove from pan and serve decorated with cedro, if using.
