Method Copy Right 2014
Cream butter and sugar in a very large mixing bowl. Add browning. Add 1 and a half cups of soaked fruit, stirring in with a large wooden spoon.
Beat eggs until light and frothy (10 to 15 minutes). Add rose water, vanilla mixed spice and cinnamon powder.
Add egg mixture and orange juice to butter mixture, fold in well. Fold soaked fruit into this mixture. (Any leftover fruit can be left to soak until the next time you bake!)
Gradually fold in flour mixture. Test to see if the wooden spoon can stand upright in middle of the mixture. If not, add some more flour until the mixture can support the spoon.
Grease baking pans and line with grease paper. Grease and flour lined pans. Pour mixture into tins and bake for 2 hours in a slow oven, 300-350 F. Place a pan of water in the bottom of the oven to ensure cakes do not dry out.
Check cakes from time to time, as baking times may vary. Cakes are ready when a toothpick or skewer inserted in centre comes out clean, or almost clean.
To store the cake for a few weeks, keep moist by pouring Red Label wine and Jamaican white rum on the top, and wrapping tightly in plastic wrap and cling film.
