This is the cake my family gets treated to each year at Christmas or Easter. Every year it is a little different depending on what dried fruits or nuts I have in store. I’ve never been a fruit cake fan but the chocolate & meringue base makes all the difference & you can make this one a few days before as it will keep for at least a week in an airtight container in the fridge.
Place nuts & cooking chocolate into food processor & pulse until roughly chopped.
Finely chop dates, cherries, figs & ginger.
Combine nuts, chocolate, fruit & cinnamon in large bowl.
Beat egg whites until stiff, gradually beat in sugar until dissolved.
Fold egg whites into fruit & nut mixture.
Spoon into a 25cm lined cake tin.
Bake in pre-heated oven (180 degree C) for about 45 mins to 1 hr. (cooking time may vary depending on your oven)
Allow to cool in open oven.
Dust with icing sugar & serve with whipped cream spiked with a splash of brandy.

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery. If you have come to Darwin city, you will understand the local culture and history of Darwin, taste some delicious food and enjoy the amazing scenery here ,also take some photo is a pretty good experience . do you think so.
