Bishops Cake Recipe

I love christmas time and getting to try out new and old favourite recipes to share with family and friends.
Tarnya, a girl I work with, brought me in this yummy cake to give me for christmas. She also gave me the recipe for it so I could share it with you.
I have to say that it is quite rich but at the same time, one that you want to reach out and take another piece as it is so delectable. It certainly got the thumbs up in our household so try it for yourself and I am sure you will agree with me just how lovely it is.


2 eggs
1 cup sugar
375g glace fruits: pineapple, pears, peaches, apricots
1 cup plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
125g red and green glace cherries
500g nuts: almonds, brazil, pecan, walnuts and hazelnuts
375g raisins
1/2 cup Grand Marnier, Curacao or Brandy


Beat sugar and eggs together.
Sieve flour and baking powder together in a large bowl.
Cut fruit the size of a cherry and add with the cherries to the dry ingredients, coating the fruit well with the flour.
Sir in the egg mix and nuts and mix thoroughly.
Pour mixture into cake tins and bake at 150C for 1 1/4 hours.
Pour alcohol over cakes while still hot.
Let cakes cool completely before taking out of tins.
Wrap in alfoil and refrigerate until ready to serve.
Cut into small chunky slices.
