Chocolate Fruit Cake Recipe
Recipe Ingredients: 1 bag of Gem Chocolate fruit cake: fruit mix, 175g soft butter, 175g of Gem soft dark brown sugar, 175ml of honey, 125ml of dark rum or Tia Maria, 100ml of orange juice, 1 teaspoon mixed spice, 3 tablespoons cocoa powder, 3 large or 4 medium eggs, beaten; 150g plain flour, 75g ground almonds, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon Gem bread soda.

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 150°C/gas mark 2 and prepare a 20cm x 9cm deep, round, loose-bottomed cake tin by lining the bottom and sides with a layer of baking parchment.
Step 2: Put the Gem fruit cake mix with chocolate, butter, sugar, honey, orange juice, spice and cocoa powder into a large, wide saucepan and gently bring to the boil, stirring as the butter melts.
Step 3: Simmer the mixture for 10 minutes, then take off the heat and leave to stand for 30 minutes.
Step 4: When the 30 minutes are up it will have cooled a little. Add the beaten eggs, flour, ground almonds, baking powder and Gem bread soda, and stir with a wooden spoon or spatula to combine.
Step 5: Pour the fruit cake mixture into the prepared cake tin. Place in the oven and bake for 1 3/4- 2 hours, by which time the top of the cake should be firm but will have a shiny, sticky look. If you insert a cake tester or skewer into it, the cake will still be a little gooey in the middle.
Step 6: Allow to cool in its tin on a wire cooling rack.
Serving suggestion: Warm for 30 seconds in the microwave and serve with vanilla ice cream.
To store: The cake can be eaten immediately, but to store wrap in greaseproof paper then foil and pack in a cake tin.
Keep in a cool place for up to twelve months.
