1 tsp mixed spice
125 unsalted butter
2 cup plain flour

Sift flour and baking powder together, mix into cold fruit mixture with well-beaten eggs. Place mixture in a greased and lined 8-inch cake tin.

Bake in a moderate oven (180C) approx. 1 1/2 hours*, reduce heat to moderately slow, bake further 20 to 30 minutes or until a skewer, inserted, comes out clean.

Notes:
* Most times, cake is cooked after 1 1/2 hours but it pays to test the cake.
