mixed fruit and peel

Grate the orange rind into a bowl, add the juice, dried fruit and peel and stir to combine. Cover and leave to stand for at least 2 hours.
Line the base of a 15cm/6” deep round cake tin with parchment. Line the sides with a double layer, twice the height of the tin. Check the lined cake tin will fit into your oven and pre-heat the oven.
Put the egg whites (or chickpea flour + water), melted butter (or coconut oil), honey, salt, and water into a jug and whisk them together.
Measure the flour and yeast into a large mixing bowl, sieve in the cinnamon and nutmeg and stir to combine.
Add the prepared egg mixture, mixing to a smooth, thick batter.
Stir in the prepared fruit.
Tip the dough into the prepared tin and smooth the top.
Cover loosely with parchment and leave to rise in a warm place until doubled in size (60-90 minutes).
Bake loosely covered with the parchment for 55-60 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
