Serves To:USMetric
8 Ounce(oz)  prunes
8 Ounce(oz)  dates
8 Ounce(oz)  currants
8 Ounce(oz)  sultanas
8 Ounce(oz)  dry white wine
8 Ounce(oz)  rum
2 Teaspoon(t)  baking powder
1 Teaspoon(t)  cinnamon, ground
1/2 Teaspoon(t)  nutmeg, grated
8 Ounce(oz)  butter
4   eggs, at room temperature, lightly beaten
1 Teaspoon(t)  vanilla essence


Stone the prunes and dates and chop finely. Place in a bowl with the currants and sultanas. Stir in the wine and rum. Let stand, covered, for 48 hours. Stir occasionally. Preheat oven to 300°F, with a tray of hot water in the bottom. Line two 9 by 5 inch tins with greaseproof paper and grease. Sift together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg. With an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Gradually add the eggs and vanilla. Fold in the flour mixture in 3 batches. Fold in the dried fruit mixture and its soaking liquid. Divide the mixture between the tins and bake until a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean, about 1 1/2 hours. Let stand 20 minutes, then remove and transfer to a cooling rack. Wrap in foil and store in an airtight container. If possible, leave for at least 1 week before serving.
