Method

 
Put sultanas into a small bowl (or glass jar with lid) with muscadel and leave for a few hours or overnight. Whisk egg yolks with 100 g castor sugar until pale and thick, about 5 minutes. Gently stir in citrus peels. Tip sultanas and liquid over egg yolk mixture and pour in olive oil down side of bowl. Sprinkle sifted flour and salt over and, using a metal slotted spoon, fold whole mixture together gently but thoroughly, using a cutting figure of 8 motion. In a large metal bowl, whisk egg whites until stiff, then whisk in 50 g castor sugar a spoonful at a time. Tip cake batter over meringue and fold together gently. Do not overmix. Remember that spreading it into baking pan will mix it further. Pour into a buttered and floured, bottom-lined 20 or 22 cm diameter cake pan and bake at 190 ºC for 20 minutes, then at 170 ºC for a further 20 minutes. Cover top of pan with a piece of foil and leave in switched-off oven for 10 minutes. Turn out and cool on a rack. Sprinkle a few drops of muscadel over to moisten cake. It keeps well for several days. TOTAL KILOJOULE COUNT: 14 210 kJ (3 395 Cal). A portion: 1 775 kJ (425 Cal).
