I made this months ago and forgot to review! I used the basic batter recipe -butter, sugar, eggs etc... and added the fruits and nuts I had on hand, also added freshly grated peel of one large orange. Baked in my springform pan (greased and lined with parchment paper). A great tasting cake, DH thought he had died and gone to heaven when I served Christmas cake in July!! Definitely will bake this again!!
