  1. Grate the orange rind into a bowl, add the juice, dried fruit and peel and stir to combine. Cover and leave to stand for at least 2 hours.
  2. Line the base of a 15cm/6” deep round cake tin with parchment. Line the sides with a double layer, twice the height of the tin. Check the lined cake tin will fit into your oven and pre-heat the oven.
  3. Put the egg whites (or chickpea flour + water), melted butter (or oil), honey, salt, and water into a jug and whisk them together.
  4. Measure the flour and yeast into a large mixing bowl, sieve in the cinnamon and nutmeg and stir to combine.
  5. Add the prepared egg liquid mixing to a smooth, thick batter.
  6. Stir in the prepared fruit.
  7. Tip the dough into the prepared tin and smooth the top.
  8. Cover loosely with parchment and leave to rise in a warm place until doubled in size (60/90 minutes).

This is delicious and so easy to make. I used margarine as i don't like butter, and it was absolutely fine. Will definitely make again

Delicious loaf and so easy to make. I felt that the spice didn’t come through so the second time I made it I used 2 tsp mixed spice and this was much better. I soaked the fruit overnight, used whole eggs, and substituted the honey for maple syrup to make it lower FODMAP.
