Ginger Beer Boiled Fruit Cake

1kg mixed dried fruit
375ml (1.5 cups) ginger beer
1 cup caster sugar
250g butter
4 eggs, lightly beaten
2 cups self raising flour
½ cup brandy optional
Place dried fruit, ginger beer, sugar and butter in a saucepan. Bring to the boil and stir until butter has melted and sugar has dissolved.
Set aside to cool.
Preheat oven to 140C. Grease a 20cm cake tin and line the base and sides with 2 layers of baking paper.
Stir through eggs and fold through flour.
Pour into prepared tin and bake for 2.5 hours until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Cover with foil if the top is browning too quickly.
This cake will keep for weeks, well-wrapped and stored in the pantry.
