Notes

This recipe has never failed for me, keeps well in an airtight container. Refrigerate in summer. Fruit can be soaked in juice overnight before boiling. Add two tablespoons of brandy for special occasions. Use a 20 cm round tin. You can also use unsweetened orange juice instead of apple. You can use wholemeal self-raising flour instead of white.
