Preparation steps

1.

For the cake, beat butter until creamy. Gradually add sugar, vanilla sugar, salt and eggs to butter and mix well. Mix flour and baking powder, sift over butter mixture and fold in with a whisk. Mix rum, raisins and candied lemon peel and fold into batter. Pour batter into a greased loaf pan and bake in oven preheated to 200°C (fan: 180°C, gas mark: 3-4)(approximately 400°F) for about 60 minutes. Let cake cool in pan for about 10 minutes, then remove from pan to a wire rack.

2.

For decorating, heat apricot jam, strain through a sieve and brush over cake while cake is still warm. Cut marzipan into pieces. Sprinkle powdered sugar over marzipan and knead until smooth. Thinly roll out marzipan between two sheets of parchment paper and cover cake. Sprinkle cake with candied lemon peel and dust lightly with powdered sugar to serve.
