Don't worry if you didn't get round to making your cake weeks ago - this non-maturing version, by cookery writer and cake specialist Joanna Farrow, is ready to eat in days. It's packed with spiced dried fruits soaked in warmed brandy to make them juicy and allow the flavours to mingle quickly. Lemon juice and grated ginger give a vibrant tang.
Serves: 24 - 30
