  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Grease and line with parchment paper one 9x5 inch loaf pan.
  2. Cream butter or margarine and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add beaten eggs and orange juice and mix well.
  3. Sift flour and baking powder. Reserve 1/3 cup of flour mixture and toss with raisins and cherries (this will keep them from sinking to the bottom of the cake). Add flour mixture to batter and blend. Add floured raisins and cherries to dough and mix until just combined. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  4. Bake at 300 degrees F (150 degrees C) for 2-1/2 hours. Don't serve until several days old. Wrap the cake in plastic wrap or foil and store in a sealed tin.

Absolutely amazing. Delicious! I cut back the cooking time to 1 3/4 hours, though.

This is an insanely good cake. Very easy to make and it really does get better after a few days. It is also good chilled. Keep an eye on the baking time.

Even though I haven't tasted this cake yet (I am saving it for Christmas Day) it was easy to make and smells so good! I used multi-coloured glace cherries and added finely chopped almonds and pi...
