Pastry Chef Siva Kumar, ibis and Novotel Bengaluru Outer Ring Road

Ingredients

Cherries 100 gm, butter softened 225 gm, castor sugar 225 gm, eggs 4 nos, refined flour 225 gm, raisins 225 gm, currants 100 gm, chopped candied peel 50 gm, lemons, grated zest only 2 nos, ground mixed spice 2 tsp

For the filling and topping

Ingredients

Marzipan 450 gm, apricot jam 100 gm

Method

Preheat the oven to 150 degrees Celsius/ 280 degrees Fahrenheit/Gas. Grease and line a 20cm/ 8in cake tin.

Cut the cherries into quarters, put in a sieve and rinse under running water. Drain well, dry thoroughly on kitchen paper.

Place the cherries in a bowl with the butter, sugar, eggs, refined flour, raisins, currants, candied peel, lemon zest, mixed spice and beat well until thoroughly mixed. Pour half the mixture into the prepared tin.

Take one-third of the marzipan and roll it out to a circle the size of the tin and then place on top of the cake mixture. Spoon the remaining cake mixture on top and level the surface.

Bake in the pre-heated oven for about 2½ hours, or until well risen, evenly brown and firm to the touch. Cover with aluminium foil after one hour if the top is browning too quickly. Leave to cool in the tin for 10 minutes then turn out, peel off the parchment and finish cooling on a wire rack.

When the cake has cooled down, brush the top with a little warmed apricot jam and roll out half the remaining marzipan to fit the top. Press firmly on the top and crimp the edges to decorate. Mark a crisscross pattern on the marzipan with a sharp knife. Form the remaining marzipan into 11 balls.

Brush the marzipan with beaten egg and arrange the marzipan balls around the edge of the cake. Brush the tops of the balls with beaten egg and then carefully place the cake under a hot grill until the top is lightly toasted.
