Probably England’s most traditional cake where versions morph into Christmas pudding and wedding cakes.
My King Charles’ Coronation Celebration Cake (🙈 alliteration unintended) is fruit-rich and moist with a honey glaze to give a surface twinkle.
Ingredients:525g mixed dried fruit & peel300ml tea225g plain flour150g unsalted butter (room temp)150g dark muscovado sugar110g ground almonds100g glace cherries (roughly chopped)4 eggs1 tbsp treacle1 tsp baking powder1 tsp vanilla extract1 tsp mixed spice½ tsp ground nutmegRunny honey & flaked almonds to decorate
Method:The evening before;Mix 300ml boiling water with 1 teabag and allow to cool. Place the mixed dried fruit and peel in a large bowl and then add cooled tea.
Cover and soak overnight.
The following day;Preheat oven to 150c fan. Grease and line a 23cm springform cake tin.
Beat the butter and sugar until smooth. Add the eggs one at a time, beating between each. Add the flour, almonds, treacle, baking powder, vanilla, mixed spice & nutmeg and beat in until all just incorporated.
Drain the mixed fruit and keep the liquid to one side. Add the dried fruits and cherries to the batter and fold in until all mixed, then pour into the prepared tin.
Place in the oven and bake for appx 2 hours, until firm to touch and dark brown on top. Remove from the oven, poke some holes all over and drizzle in the tea. Allow to cool fully on a wire rack.
Mix some honey and a dash of vanilla extract, spread over the top of the cake and sprinkle with flaked almonds.
Decorate as desired.
