This is how it's made Cherry and Marzipan Fruity Loaf

  1. Start by preheating your oven to 160°C, 325°F or gas mark 3.
  2. Then sift the flour and baking powder into a large mixing bowl, add the other ingredients, except the marzipan, and beat together with a wooden spoon.
  3. Dice half the marzipan and fold it in.
  4. Grease and line the bottom of a 900g loaf tin and spoon in the mixture.
  5. Pop it in the oven for 1 – 1 ¼ hours.
  6. Turn the cake out to cool on a wire rack.
  7. Roll out the remaining marzipan, cut into thin strips, twist and arrange in a fancy lattice pattern over the loaf.
  8. Put it under the grill until lightly browned, then dig in.
