Recipe's preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 150 degrees.  Heavily grease and flour a large loaf pan.

    In TMX bowl, place raisins, figs, almonds and 60g of the flour.  Pulse the turbo button a few times until fruit-nut mixture is chopped but not mashed.  Set aside.

    Without washing out bowl, mill raw sugar 7 seconds at speed 10.  Add butter (roughly chopped, at room temperature) and honey then beat for 8 seconds at speed 6. Scrape down.   Add eggs, all remaining dry ingredients and water or buttermilk then blend for 15 seconds at speed 4.  Scrape again.  Add fruit-nut mixture and fold into batter for one minute on reverse / speed 1.

     Pour batter into pan.  Cut through with spatula to distribute evenly.  Bake for about one and a half hours, or until a cake tester poked into centre comes out clean.  Let cool in pan for thirty minutes, then turn out on rack to cool completely.

    Makes one large loaf cake.

    Thank you, Panoukla.  Cut down the sugar if you don't like sweet things!  This is the authentic "Southern" Scripture Cake proportions though.
