        Step 1

        Place butter, dried mixed fruit, dates, prunes, cherries, cranberries, brandy, marmalade, golden syrup and sugar in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring, for 10 minutes or until butter has melted and sugar has dissolved. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in bicarbonate of soda. Cool completely.
        Step 2

        Preheat oven to 150°C/130°C fan-forced. Grease two 7cm-deep, 22cm round (base) cake pans. Line bases and sides with 3 layers of baking paper. Stir egg into fruit mixture. Sift over flours and mixed spice. Stir to combine. Divide evenly into prepared pans. Level tops. Decorate with almonds.
        Step 3

        Bake for 2 hours 30 minutes (see tip) or until a small sharp knife inserted in centre of each cake comes out clean (cover with foil if over-browning). Wrap pans in foil. Turn onto a board (this ensures the top of the cake is flat). Cool completely. Remove cakes from pans. Serve.
