Other Ingredients Required
1Empty the bag of premixed Charlesworth nuts and fruits into a large bowl and combine with the coconut, flour, cocoa and icing sugar. Set aside while preparing the wet ingredients.
2Melt butter and chocolate in the top of a double saucepan, add jam and brandy and mix well. Add this mixture to dry ingredients and mix thoroughly until all mixture is moist.
3Grease and line 23cm flan dish (or cake tin), and spoon in the firm mixture. Using a dampened hand, press mixture very firmly into the dish or tin.
4Bake in a moderate oven (180°) for 35 minutes*. The Panforte may appear sticky and moist, but will become firm once cooled. Remove from tin when cooled. Dust with icing sugar before serving. Delicious when sliced thinly and served with coffee or liqueur.
