Light and Easy Boiled Fruit Cake

375g mixed fruit
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon mixed spice
1/2 cup water
125g butter
1/2 sherry
2 eggs
2 tablespoons marmalade
1 cup self raising flour
1 cup plain flour
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
I didn’t use the sherry because I am not that old. I put a tsp of almond essence in and next time I will add 1/2 c orange juice to make the cake a little less crumbly.

Place fruit, sugar, spice, water and butter in a saucepan bring to the boil. Simmer for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and cool. Add Sherry, eggs and marmalade. Fold in Flours and soda mix well. Place mixture in a greased and lined 20cm cake tin. Bake in a moderately slow oven for 2 1/4 hours or until cooked when tested.
