  1. 1. A day or possibly two before baking the cake, combine all the dry fruits and nuts in a large bowl and toss well with the rum or possibly Calvados and cider.
  2. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside in a cold place for at least 24 hrs. Toss the mix occasionally.
  3. 2. On the baking day, prepare pans. Use one tube pan 10 x 4 inches or possibly one 9 1/4-inch tube pan (9 c. capacity) plus 2 baby loaf pans, each 6 x 3 1/2 x 2 inches, or possibly the equivalent in capacity (cake consists of about 12 c. batter.) Lightly grease pan(s), cut paper liners to cover both bottom and sides, press paper in place, then grease paper. Position rack in center of oven for 1 large cake, or possibly divide oven in thirds for several cakes. Preheat oven to 325 F (165 C).
  4. 3. Sift both flours, the baking pwdr, baking soda, salt, and spices together onto wax paper. Set aside.
  5. To make the cake batter, use a spoon and a mixing bowl or possibly the electric mixer to cream together the butter and sugar till well blended. Add in Large eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Stir in vanilla. Add in the flour mix in 3 or possibly 4 additions, beating very slowly to blend after each addition. The batter will be quite stiff. Stir in the grated apple and applesauce. Stir the macerated fruit-nut-rum mix, then add in it to the batter along with all the liquid. Stir the batter with a sturdy wooden spoon till well blended; really the best way to blend is with your bare hands.
  6. 4. Spoon the batter into the prepared pan(s), filling them about 2/3
  7. continued in part 2
