2Pour a bottle of wine to cover.
3Let rest for a few weeks or months.
4Meng de room, sugar and butter until light and creamy.
5Break the eggs into butter mixture and mix.
6Add soaked fruit, but not too much wine, and mix well.
7Add mixed peel and cherries lightly floured.
8Add essences and spices and mix well again.
9Stir in flour and when everything is mixed, there may be some of the wine from the soaked fruits.
10Add brown dye on cake as dark as you want to make.
11Pour into well greased and lined (with wax paper) cake tins and bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees.
