Ingredients

2 2/3 cups superfine sugar

2/3 cup light corn syrup

1/2 cup water

2 egg whites, at room temperature

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 teaspoon orange extract

1 teaspoon almond extract

1/2 cup diced candied fruit, plus additional for topping

1 cup sliced almonds

Directions

  1. Combine sugar, corn syrup and water in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat until a candy thermometer temperature registers 260 degrees F.
  2. Meanwhile, in an electric mixer, beat egg whites to form stiff peaks. When sugar reaches 260 degrees F, slowly pour in a thin stream into egg whites, while the mixer is running. Add extracts, beat on medium speed for 13 minutes, then fold the candied fruit into the mixture. Mix for another 2 minutes, then fold in 1/2 cup of the almonds. Pour mixture into 9-inch square cake pan sprayed with baking spray or butter the pan and then dust with flour. Top with remaining almonds and additional candied fruit.
