Step 2Remove the fruit mixture from the fridge and set aside for 30 minutes to come to room temperature.
Step 3Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan forced. Grease a 20cm square cake pan. Line base and sides with baking paper.
Step 4Add the flour (300g (2 cups) self-raising flour) to the fruit mixture. Stir to combine. Pour into the prepared pan and smooth the surface. Bake for 1 hour 45 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Set aside in the pan for 30 minutes to cool slightly before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
For an extra Baileys hit, brush the warm cake with a little more Baileys before allowing to cool completely.
