3. Leave in a warm place for 15 minutes or until frothy.

4. Put the flours into a warm bowl and add the yeast mixture, salt, sugar, eggs, margarine, walnuts and dates.

5. Beat well for 3 minutes until well blended, then pour into the savarin tin.

6. Cover and leave to rise in a warm place for 35-40 minutes.

7. Bake at 200°C (400°F) mark 6 for 30-35 minutes, until golden brown.

8. Heat the honey, orange rind and juice. Stir in the brandy. Keep warm.

9. Turn the savarin out on to a wire rack placed over a baking tray, and pierce all over with a fine skewer.
