Method Prep:15min › Cook:30min › Ready in:45min
Preheat the oven to 180 C / Fan 160 / Gas 4. Line a baking tray with parchment.
In a bowl place all the nuts, dried fruit, marmalade, cinnamon, glace orange rind, chopped and sugar. Mix with a wooden spoon.
Pour in wine and oil and stir. Then stir in the flour and mix to get a sticky dough. The flour will work as a glue, so add more if the mix still falls apart.
With wet hands shape 8 logs similar in size. Transfer to the baking tray.
Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until golden. Remove from oven, cool and serve.
