Preparation steps

1.
Heat the oven to 170°C (150°C in a fan oven), 325°F, gas 3 and grease two Bundt cake pans.
2.
Soften the dried fruits and the raisins in the rum. Mix together all the ingredients for the dough, knead well and leave to dry in a warm, draft-free place to rise until it has doubled in size.

Knead in the fruit and divide the mixture between the two pans. Bake for 45-60 min. After 15-20 min brush with some butter and then continue to bake. Remove from the tins and leave to cool on a wire rack. Serve dusted with icing sugar.
