1. Line the casserole with a pre-shaped 20cm deep cake tin liner, or line with greaseproof paper.

2. Put the first six ingredients into a mixing bowl and microwave on high power for 3 minutes.

3. Mix well, then add all the remaining ingredients and mix again.

4. Transfer to the lined casserole and level the top (decorate with a few blanched almonds if it is to be a plain fruit cake).

5. Cook below the centre of the oven for approximately 75-90 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out cleanly.
