You will need a round and deep baking pan with a 15 cm diameter.
1. Line the base and sides of the baking pan with baking paper and preheat the oven to 160°C (320°F) on fan.
2. In a deep pan, melt the butter, and once melted, add the dates, glacé cherries, walnut sweet, raisins, cognac, golden syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Stir with a wooden spoon for about 4-5 minutes until the mixture is well heated, and the dried fruits have absorbed most of the liquids.
3. Remove the pan from the heat for a while, then add the flour and eggs. Continue to mix until the mixture is well-mixed. Finally, add the chopped walnuts and transfer the mixture to the baking pan.
4. Bake the cake for approximately 50 minutes or until it turns golden brown.
5. Once it has cooled, remove it from the baking pan and decorate it with icing, dried fruits, nuts, or your preferred decorations.
Enjoy your Christmas cake!
