  • 100g dried mixed fruit
  • 100g sultanas
  • 100g raisins
  • 50g currants
  • 50g chopped dates
  • 50g dried cranberries
  • 1 granny smith apple, coarsely grated
  • 1 orange, zested and juiced
  • 50ml brandy
  • 50ml apple juice
  • 100g dark chocolate, broken into pieces
  • 60g unsalted butter, melted
  • 100g dark brown soft sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp mixed spice
  • 50g ground almonds
  • 50g plain flour


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 180°C/160°C fan/gas 4. Line a 30cm x 20cm brownie tin with baking paper.

Step 2

In a large bowl, combine the mixed fruit, sultanas, raisins, currants, dates, cranberries, grated apple, orange zest and juice, brandy and apple juice and leave to infuse while you make the batter.

Step 3

In a small pan, bring 200ml water up to a gentle simmer. Place a larger glass or metal bowl over the pan, ensuring the base doesn’t touch the water.

Step 4

Add the dark chocolate to the bowl and leave it to melt. Once melted, remove the bowl and set aside.

Step 5

In another large bowl using electric beaters or a standing mixer, whisk together the melted butter and sugar until well combined.

Step 6

Add the eggs one at a time, whisking well in between each addition, until the batter is thick and glossy. Add in the melted chocolate and gently mix by hand until just combined.
