  • Beat well with a spoon or with the dough hook of an electric mixer for about 5 minutes, or until stiff but elastic.
  • Fold in dried fruit and peel, cover with a cloth and let rise in a warm place until doubled.
  • Divide in half and place each in a greased 7” cake tin. Cover and let rise again for 30 minutes.
