Let’s make it
Sift together the dry ingredients. Add the MILKMAID, margarine, water and vanilla. Beat until thoroughly mixed. Pour into prepared tin and bake in a moderate oven for 35 minutes.
Cut the fruits into neat pieces. Reserve a few pieces for decoration. Mix the fruits and rum together. Sprinkle sugar and leave for one hour at least.
Slice the cake lengthwise into long narrow oblong pieces. Soak with fruit juice. Arrange the fruit on one piece of cake and arrange the other piece on top. Cover the sides and top with whipped cream and decorate with desiccated coconut and fruit pieces.
