    Lauren H-C's Note:

    I adapted this recipe from Jane Grigson's British Cookery (unfortunately out-of-print). I use French Tart's excellent recipe for mixed spice.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 16

    Yield:

    9-inch ...

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 300Ëš Fahrenheit. Place the raisins and figs in a large bowl and cover with just-boiled water. Set aside. Grease a 9”-round springform pan and line the bottom with parchment paper. Place on a baking sheet and set aside.
    2. 2
      In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar then beat in the honey. Add the eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. Mix in the flour, a cup at a time, adding the salt, baking powder and mixed spice with the last cup of flour. Don’t overmix.
    3. 3
      Drain the raisins and figs then gently stir into the cake batter. Stir in the almonds, as well. I found that the dampness from the soaked fruit was enough liquid to make the cake batter perfectly moist. However, if your batter is too stiff, add milk (about a tablespoon at a time), to thin it out.
    4. 4
      Drop the batter into the cake tin (you’ll probably want a wooden spoon or spatula for this), then smooth out the surface of the batter. Bake in the middle of the oven 1 ½ to 2 hours. The cake is ready when a tester inserted in the middle comes out clean.
    5. 5
      Cool the cake in its tin on a rack for about ten minutes, then remove the cake from the tin to cool completely.
