  • 1 cup marsala wine
  • 23 cup raisins
  • 4 cups flour
  • 34 cup sugar
  • 16 Tbsp. unsalted butter, 
  • 34 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 egg white, beaten until foamy
  • 34 cup roughly chopped blanched almonds
  • 12 cup roughly chopped candied citron
  • 14 cup pine nuts
  • 14 cup roughly chopped candied cherries


Step 1

Heat oven to 475°. Put wine and raisins into a small bowl; let sit 30 minutes.

Step 2

Combine flour, sugar, butter, and salt in a large bowl; beat with a hand mixer until incorporated, 2–3 minutes. Add egg white; mix to combine. Stir in raisins and wine, along with almonds, citron, pine nuts, and cherries.

Step 3

Transfer dough to a parchment paper–lined baking sheet; shape dough into an 8" by 10" rectangle about 1 1⁄2" thick. Bake until dark brown but still a little moist in center, 35–40 minutes. Let cool for 20 minutes. Cut and serve.
