Place fruit, glace cherries, brown sugar, cocoa, bicarb soda, salt, allspice, nutmeg and water in a saucepan.
Bring to the boil, stirring, and boil (covered) for 3 minutes.
Take from heat and add chopped butter and golden syrup. Stir to combine.
Transfer to a bowl and allow to cool to room temperature.
When cool, add eggs, jam (I used strawberry jam) and SR flour. Stir well.
Line muffin pans with paper (I use the pre-shaped store-bought muffin papers). Add mixture to pans (makes 12).
Bake in oven at 175 degrees celsius (fan-forced) for 25-30 minutes.
When you take cakes from the oven, brush the tops with whisky and wrap in foil to cool.
Allow cakes to cool completely before adding glaze.
