Select the BAKE ONLY program.
Mixed dried fruits 12 oz
Chopped dates 2 oz
Chopped walnuts 2 oz
Chopped cherries 4 oz
Water 10 fl.oz. (1 1/4 C)
Butter 3 oz
Medium sized eggs, beaten 3
Plain flour 9 oz. (1 13/16 C)
Bicarbonate of soda (baking soda) 1 tsp

1. Place the fruits, dates, walnuts, cherries, water and butter together and heat until the fat has melted and the liquid is hot. This can be done on the hob or in the microwave oven. (High power for 4-5 minutes)
2. Allow to cool slightly, then add eggs, flour and the bicarbonate of soda. Mix well.
3. Remove the kneading blade from the bread pan and line the bottom and sides with baking parchment.
4. Place the mixture into the bread pan, being careful to ensure that the mixture stays inside the baking parchment.
5. Select the BAKE ONLY program and enter 55 minutes on the timer.
6. After baking, test with a skewer to see if the cake is cooked. If the cake does require extra time, select the BAKE ONLY program again and enter a further 3-5 minutes on the timer. If still only slightly sticky, it will cook through naturally during the stand period.
7. Wearing oven gloves, take the bread pan out of the breadmaker. Leave to stand for 5-10 minutes before removing from the breadpan and allowing to cool.
