First, lightly toast the almonds in a non-stick pan, then let them cool
Cut the candied fruit into small cubes.
Combine almonds, candied fruit, flour and spices in a bowl and mix.
Pour the syrup over the other ingredients and mix with a wooden spoon: the mixture will be quite firm.
Place the wafer on the bottom of the mold (I used a normal one, but if you have a hinged one it’s better: it will be easier to unmold the cake), pour the mixture into the mould, level the surface and sprinkle with plenty of icing sugar , then cook for approximately 25-30 minutes in a static oven preheated to 180°C.
Remove the cake from the oven, but let it cool slightly before turning it out: do not let it cool completely, or you will not be able to remove it from the mold, due to the caramelized sugar.
The panforte is ready: let it cool completely, sprinkle it with plenty of icing sugar and serve it.
