Instructions

    1. To a bowl, add the raisins, sultanas, cranberries, dried cherries and the orange and lemon zest.
    2. Pour in the brandy or rum and leave to soak at least 1 days, giving a brief stir every so often.
    3. Preheat oven to 150°C.
    4. In a separate bowl, add organic whole wheat flour, baking soda, almond flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice and mix to combine all ingredients well.
    5. In a different bowl, beat coconut sugar and vegan spread together until creamy.
    6. Beat in flax milk and chia or flax eggs.
    7. Add the dry ingredients to this and briefly combine – the batter will be more like a dough rather than a normal cake batter.
    8. Fold in the soaked fruits and slivered almonds and mix as little as possible, just making sure all ingredients are well combined.
    9. Bake in the oven for 2 hours at 150°C.
