With the robust and versatile XL1500 Food Processor
Grilled to perfection with our contact toaster
This classic cake makes the perfect family treat for a
bank-holiday weekend. It offers a wonderful fruit cake covered with
marzipan to go with your other teatime treats over Easter.
Makes one 20cm round cake.
Preheat oven 160c. Grease deep 20cm round cake tin, line with a
double thickness of greaseproof paper and grease the paper.
Using your Food Processor
(large bowl with dough blade) put all the ingredients in, except
marzipan, egg yolk and decorations. Mix until combined.
Roll out half the marzipan to a 20cm round. Spoon half the cake
mixture into the cake tin and place marzipan round on top. Add the
other half of cake mixture and smooth the surface.
Bake for 2 hours 30 mins, or until golden and springy to the
touch. Leave in the tin for 15 mins, then turn out on to a wire
rack, peel off the lining paper and leave to cool.
Roll out the reserved marzipan to fit the cake. Brush the cake
top with egg yolk and place marzipan on top. Flute the edges and
make a pattern on top with a fork. Brush with more egg yolk. Put
the cake on a baking sheet and grill for 5 mins to brown the top
lightly. Allow to cool before decorating.
