    1. Preheat oven to 120 degrees C. Grease one 25cm ring tin. Line the bottom of the tin with baking paper and dust with flour.
    2. Cream the butter together with the white sugar. Add eggs one at a time mixing well after each one. Mix in the vanilla essence.
    3. Stir in 3 cups of the flour, baking powder and salt then blend well.
    4. Toss glace cherries, chopped pecans, pineapple and sultanas with the remaining 1 cup flour. Stir fruit and nut mixture into the batter and pour into prepared tin.
    5. Bake at 120 degrees C for 3 hours. Let cake cool for 20 minutes before removing from tin.
    6. After cake is cold cut a piece of baking paper to fit the top of the cake. Put the apple slices on top of the baking paper and put cake into a closed container.
    7. Store cake in a cool dry area for about 3 days or until the cake takes up the juice from the apple slices. Remove apple slices and waxed paper then serve.
