With just one click, all these ingredients will be put into a basket on mySupermarket.co.uk.
You can select the products you need, compare prices and choose the retailer you wish to buy them from. Or you can leave them in your basket and come back later to buy items from other recipes.
One thing is for sure though, you are guaranteed to find the best value.
Method1. Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Line the base of a buttered loose-bottomed 20cm cake tin with greaseproof paper.
2. In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, melt the butter, sugar and stout together over a low heat. Add the orange zest, sultanas, raisins and mixed peel. Bring to the boil and leave for 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and cool slightly.
2. Sift the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg into a large mixing bowl and add the warm fruit mix. Stir in cherries, then gradually pour in the egg, stirring well.
3. Spoon the mixture into the tin, smoothing the top over with a knife. Bake in for around 1 1/2 hours, or until an inserted skewer comes out clean.
