 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2       c            Plain flour
    2       ts           Baking powder
  500       g            Glace pineapple
  100       g            Glace pear
  100       g            Glace kiwi fruit
  100       g            Glace apple
  100                    Glace apricot
  250                    Glace cherries
  250       g            Sultanas
  250       g            Currants
    4                    Eggs
      2/3   c            Brown sugar
  250       g            Halved blanched almonds
  250       g            Halved pecan nuts
  250       g            Halved macadamia ants
  250                    Halved Brazil nuts
      1/2   c            Grand Marnier or Cointreau.
   From the traditional to the (comparatively) new-fangled.  Stained
   glass or bishopcakes, very popular in the US, 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.
   [This is news to me.  I've never heard either of the two terms
   applied to fruit cakes.  Other terms, maybe, but not those...  S.C.]
   Butter a round 23 an cake tin and line with grease proof paper.
   Butter the grease proof.  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 150C 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 to warm then wrap it, tin and all, in
   aluminum foil and refrigerate overnight.
   Remove from tin, peel away paper and store in airtight tin.
