How to Make Orange Yogurt Cake


  • Heat oven to 160C/140C fan/gas 3. Grease a deep 20cm cake tin and line with baking parchment.
  • Put the raisins, cherries, all the cranberries, orange zest and juice, and alcohol into a small pan.
  • Bring to the boil and leave to simmer for 3 mins, until the cranberries have softened a little and most of the liquid has evaporated.
  • Set aside to cool. Put the sugar, butter and vanilla in a bowl and beat with an electric mixer until pale and fluffy.
  • Add the eggs, flour, almonds, hazelnuts and mixed spice. Whisk again until just combined.
  • Then stir through the soaked fruit and any remaining juices.
  • Tip the cake mixture into the tin and level the top, then bake for in preheated oven on 160C/140C fan/gas mark 3 for 1 hr and 20 mins, until a skewer pushed into the centre of the cake comes out clean.
  • If the skewer has any uncooked cake mixture on it, return it to the oven for 10 mins.
  • Then check again. Leave in the tin to cool.
  • Decorate with icing of marzipan according to your choice.
