Spoon batter into prepared pan. Arrange additional candied fruit and nuts on top of batter, if desired. Cover pan with 10-inch brown paper circle, greased side down. Bake at 250 degrees for about 4 hours or until cake tests dones. Remove from oven. Take off paper cover, and slowly pour 1/4 cup brandy evenly over
cake; cool completely on wire rack.
