Instructions

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 170°C/150°C Fan, 325°F, Gas Mark 3.

Step 2

Combine the almonds, hazelnuts, pistachios, figs, candied peel and cranberries in a mixing bowl.

Step 3

In another bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, cinnamon and mixed spice, and then stir into the fruit and nut mixture.

Step 4

Next, mix Lyle’s Golden Syrup, Tate & Lyle Golden Caster Sugar and butter together in a small non-stick pan over a low heat and stir with a wooden spoon until very hot and the sugar has dissolved (about 5 mins), then add to the bowl of dry ingredients. Stir really well and spoon into the prepared tin, pressing down well to make sure the surface is level.

Step 5

Bake on the middle shelf of the oven for 40-45 mins until richly brown and bubbling a little at the sides. Remove, leave to cool slightly, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely. Lightly dust with icing sugar (optional) and cut into small slices to serve.
