My oven seems to be a turbo fan forced without an option to swap to slow, so when I followed the times as suggested the cake was too dry. On my second go I shaved off 20 minutes for the second part, came out ok, but I think I could still go another 10 minutes and it would be great. So to recap 40min at 160 and then 1 hour at 150 - but do test!
For the Australians out there here is the cup version of the recipe. 2 cups mixed fruit; 1 cup glace cherries - not chopped, so you need to chop them up after meausuring; 1/4 cup mixed peel; 1/2 cup walnuts - not chopped up, so will need to do that as well; 2 cups white sugar; 170g butter; 1 cup milk; 1/2 teaspoon mixed spice ( I used 1 teaspoon); 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda ( same as baking soda); 2 1/2 cups self raising flour; 2 eggs. I also soaked the mixed fruit in rum for a few days as well.
Oh by the way, none of the first dry cake was left, gone within days. My husband said it was perfectly OK...
