Preparation steps

1.

Preheat the oven to 180°C (approximately 350°F). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar, spices, orange zest, flour and baking powder and mix until smooth. Stir in the almonds and chopped walnuts. Spoon a little flour into a bowl. Dice the figs and dates and add to the bowl along with the cherries, candied peel, currants and raisins and toss the fruit to coat with the flour. Fodl the fruit into the batter.

2.

Spread the batter onto the baking sheet and smooth the top. Bake until the top springs back when lightly touched and a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean,  60-70 minutes, tenting the pan with aluminum foil after 40 minutes.

3.

Cool in the pan on a wire rack. In a small saucepan heat the apricot jam and the sugar until the sugar has dissolved, about 2 minutes Brush the fruitcake with the jam and serve cut into small pieces.
