 Ingredients List

  • 1 c Plain flour
  • 1 ts Baking powder
  • 1/2 lb Glace pineapple
  • 2 oz Glace pear
  • 2 oz Glace kiwi fruit
  • 2 oz Glace apple
  • 2 oz Glace apricot
  • 4 oz Glace cherries
  • 4 oz Sultanas
  • 4 oz Currants
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/3 c Brown sugar
  • 4 oz Halved blanched almonds
  • 4 oz Halved pecan nuts
  • 4 oz Halved macadamia ants
  • 4 oz Halved Brazil nuts
  • 1/4 c Grand Marnier or Cointreau.


From the traditional to the (comparatively) new-fangled. Stained glass or
bishopcakes, very popular in the UK, are so called, one presumes, because
they consist almost entirely of glace fruit and nuts, and the glace fruit
has something of the translucency of a stained-glass church window.

Butter a large cake tin. Line with waxed paper. Butter the paper. Chop
the glace fruits roughly. Sift together the flour and baking powder.

Mix in all the fruits, together with the nuts. Put the mixture into the
cake tin, wet hands and press mixture down firmly.

Bake in a preheated 300F degree oven for 1 1/2 hours. Take cake out of
the oven and drizzle the Grand Marnier or Cointreau over the top. Leave
the cake in the oven to cool until warm, then wrap it, tin and all, in
aluminum foil and refrigerate overnight.

Remove from tin, peel away paper and store in airtight tin.
