Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/gas mark 4

Use an 18cm/7 inch loose bottom cake tin.

Grease and line the cake tin. Place the fruit and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Add the sugar and butter and stir until the butter melts. Remove from the heat and cool.

Sift the flour, spices and soda in a large mixing bowl. Add the walnuts and mix. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients. Add the wet ingredients and the sour cream, beating until well mixed. Spoon the mixture into the prepared tin and bake for 1 hour and 20 minutes, until well risen. Leave in tin for 10 minutes, then turn out onto wire rack to cool.
