Ideally, make this recipe one month ahead. This basic fruit mix is enough to make a regular-sized cake, a boiled or steamed pudding to serve 10, as well as 12 mince pies.

* You can customise the flavour of the fruit mix by substituting other dried fruit. To make the substitutions, ensure the substitute is the same weight as the fruit you are replacing.
