I used @homebargains fruit in brandy for my recipe ( as I knew were I was with calories and carbs thenn ( with a little bit of naughty-ness added ..) but you can just soak your fruit in boiling water if your using dried ...
Full recipe in comments...
( and you can lower amount of fruit or use coconut flour instead of gluten free ..if you want less carbs !)
Preheat your oven to 150 C. Line a 20 cm cake tin ( spingform is best ) with baking paper along the base and sides.Combine the almond flour, gluten free self raising flour, x an then gum , bicarb, salt, mixed spice and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl.
Zest the orange and roughly chop the almonds, then add the zest and nuts to the bowl too. Keep the orange
In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, melted butter vanilla& Squeeze in the juice of the orange (doesn't matter if some pulp goes in)Create a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and gradually stir in the wet mixture, stirring as you go (if you choose to use coconut flour instead of gluten free it’s very absorbent so it's better to add it gradually). You should end up with a very thick batter, almost like a wet crumbly doughAdd your fruit to the cake batter. Fold it in with a spoon until combine evenlyScoop the cake batter in to your lined baking tin and press down with your fingers or the back of a spoon until there are no gaps and the top is smooth
Bake the cake for between 60 - 70 minutes, at 150 or until the top is well browned and the centre feels firm to touchIf you're going to glaze the cake, do so immediately while the cake is hot, brushing on your glaze with a pastry brush. You can also poke a few holes in the cake and then drizzle it over, if you want to use a lot and really soak the cake. To use the glaze I have suggested above, simply heat up the @nkdliving golden Erythritol, with a bit of water so runny, mix with a small bit of the orange juice or zest and then brush over the top of the cake.
