PREPARATION:

  • Put the flour and sugar in a large bowl, add the yeast on one side and the salt on the other. Add the butter & 200ml/7fl oz of the milk and stir together.
  • Add the remaining milk and form a soft dough. Transfer to a floured surface and knead until smooth and pliable.
  • Mix the nutmeg, cloves, vanilla, almond extract, almonds, dried fruit and mixed peel in a large bowl. Put the dough on top and knead to incorporate the dried fruit and spices as you go. Cover the bowl with cling film and leave to rise for 1-2 hours in a warm place, or until doubled in size.
  • Flatten the dough on a lightly floured surface to a rectangle. Brush with the melted butter.
  • Roll out the marzipan. Place on top of the dough in the middle. Roll the dough up to enclose the marzipan and transfer to a baking tray lined with baking parchment. Cover and leave until risen and doubled in size.
  • Preheat the oven to 190C/375F/Gas 5 (fan 170C), bake for an hour. Remove from the oven, brush with melted butter, and dust with icing sugar.
  • Serve cold.
