1 cup+ chopped nuts, your choice chopped
Use a circular baking pan, ideally spring form (removable bottom). Cut a piece of parchment paper to fit the bottom circle, just drawing around with a pencil and cutting out. Children can help with this.
Chop the mixed dried fruits into small pieces, though you may choose to leave the cherries larger. Mixed together, sprinkle this on top of the nuts/bread crumbs base and smooth so they are even. Then add honey, dribbling over the entire. Finally, use your fingers to splay the water over the top and pack the cake down firmly.
