Ingredients

  • 4 - eggs
  • 2 cups - flour
  • 1.5 cups - broken Walnuts
  • 1.5 cups - broken Almonds

  • 2 tbsp - vanilla essence
  • 2 tbsp - baking powder

    1. Soak the fruits & nuts in the rum overnight.
    2. Beat together eggs, gradually adding sugar & vanilla.
    3. Mix thoroughly.

    5. Line 2 cake tins with wax paper.
    6. Divide the mixture between pans.

    9. Serve with fresh whipped cream.
