So here's my almondy fruit cake. I baked it as a birthday cake for my father this week. He loves anything with currants and almonds so I thought... why not combine the two! You can make it as fruity and almondy as you like, or maybe add a little alcohol for extra depth or to help preserve it for longer.
Add extra mixed fruit and peel if you like. Or substitute some of the flour for extra ground almonds depending on your taste. The baking powder is also optional but I use it because I find that if you're not careful fruit cakes can sometimes be a bit dense so I find it helps the cake maintain a fluffy texture and keeps it super tasty.
