step 1

Combine all the dry fruits and orange peel in a jar. Pour over the rum and whiskey. Stir well and set aside for at least 1 week.

step 2

Preheat your oven to 170C. Grease and line an 8" cake tin with parchment paper. Butter the parchment paper too.

step 3

Sift together the flours, spices, baking powder, and baking soda in a bowl. In a bowl, beat together the butter and jaggery powder or brown sugar, until pale and creamy.

step 4

Add in the eggs, one at a time. Fold in the dry ingredients, until no white streaks remain. Fold in the orange zest, nuts, and all the soaked fruits.

step 5

Once you've taken the cake out of the oven, use a wooden skewer to poke holes on the surface of the cake. Brush with rum or the leftover alcohol.

step 6

Let the cake cool completely. Cover with aluminum foil and let the cake rest for 1 day. Next day, unmould the cake and place it on a serving platter.

step 7

Brush the surface again with rum. Top with soaked fruits and some glace cherries if you like. Cut into slices and serve. Enjoy!
