• 125g unsalted butter, softened, plus extra for greasing
  • ½ orange, finely zested and juiced
  • 1 tsp ground mixed spice
  • 200g light brown soft sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 200g self-raising flour
  • 200g mixed dried fruit

    Preheat the oven to 180°C/fan 160°C/gas mark 4. Grease or line 3 baking trays.

    Beat the butter, orange zest, mixed spice and sugar together until pale and fluffy. Add the vanilla extract and sift in the flour. Add the dried fruit and orange juice and mix well.
