Preheat the oven to 150 °C. Line a greased cake tin (8 x 26 cm) with baking paper.

1 Mix the ginger and syrup, cherries, fruitcake mix, citrus peel and 80 ml brandy and leave for 15 minutes.

2 In a separate bowl cream the butter and caster sugar. Add the eggs one at a time and mix. Add the flour, baking powder and fruitcake mixture.

3 Mix well and turn the batter into the prepared tin.

4 Bake for about 50 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.

5 Brush the top with the extra brandy and leave to cool in the tin for 15 minutes. Turn onto a serving plate, slice and dust with a little icing sugar.

Tip: To store, sprinkle brandy over the fruitcake and cover securely with foil, then wrap in clingfilm.
