• 1 lb (or slightly more) mixed dried fruit
• 4 oz. brown sugar (or dark muscovado)
• 4 oz. plain flour
• 4 oz wholemeal flour

Preheat oven at Gas Mark 4 (350’F, 180’C). Place all ingredients (minus flour and BP) in a bowl and leave to soak for an hour. Mix in the flour + BP and pour into an 8″ (or so) cake tin – greased and/or papered and bake for about an hour.
