A moist and delicious cake. I prefer this than traditional mixed peel cakes. This is wonderful with a cup of hot tea (which I just had). Prep time includes 2 hours of soaking time for the apricots and raisins. TIPS: If you're making the whole recipe, you may use a Bundt pan. If halving the recipe, use a 8" square or round pan. If you're pressed for time, you can heat the dried fruits in brandy in the microwave on LOW, stirring every for 30 secs until warmed and fruits are soft. To chop the apricots finely, I use a kitchen shears.
