All in one Fruit/Lemon Curd Cake - very easy

This cake doesn't taste too lemon curdy - but has a really nice flavour and texture.

Oven: 160 deg.C (325F)
3 ozs. (75g approx.) soft margarine (Flora)
3 ozs. soft brown sugar
6ozs. (175g.) mixed dried fruit
2  eggs - beaten*
4.1/2 ozs. (125g) Self Raising flour
1oz. glace cherries
2 tablespoons of lemon curd (or marmalade)

Grease a (loaf) tin
Place all the ingredients into a large bowl and mix well (don't overbeat) until well blended.
Put into your baking dish, and spread evenly with a knife. 
If you make a small well in the centre, it shouldn't split (too much) as it rises.
Bake for approx. an hour - but do check.
It should be firm in the centre. 
Cool, cut and eat :)

*If you double up the quantities to make a larger cake - use 3 large eggs.
TIP: if you don't want the cake to brown too much - place it in a deeper tin than the mixture requires.
