250g butter (softened)
100 fine sugar
1 tsp ( I used 1/2 tsp) ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp (I used 1/2 tsp) orange essence
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
2 large eggs
B(combined & sifted)
250g plain flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cream of tartar
100g mixed dried mixed fruits*
200g dried black currants* - *me used prune
50g walnuts (chopped into small pieces)
20g plain flour
200g castor sugar (for burnt sugar)
Heat a steamer over medium heat.
Combine A, except eggs, mix with a wooden spoon.
Add eggs, one at a time, & blend well. Do not overmix.
Add B &mix well.
Add C & mix well. Do not overmix.
Prepare burnt sugar by placing D into a heavy skillet over medium high heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon as sugar melts. When it becomes very dark brown, remove from heat and carefully add to the fruit cake mixture. (NB: the burnt sugar will harden almost immediately, the hardened ones can still be added to the batter in the baking pan.)
Pour mixture into a lined & greased baking pan (8x8x4"). Then cover pan with aluminium foil & tie the pan with a string again. Make sure the pan is water-proof.
Steam the cake for 4 hours. Then remove pan from steamer. Leave pan aside for 10 minutes. Then remove cake from pan. Leave to cool.
