Combine the butter and sugar together in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar, then stir in stout. Add the orange zest, sultanas, raisins, and candied lemon and/or orange peel. Raise the heat to high, bring to a boil, and boil, stirring frequently, for 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.

Sieve the flour, baking soda, and pumpkin pie spice together into a large bowl. When the Guinness mixture has cooled to lukewarm, stir it into the flour mixture. Stir in the cherries, then slowly add eggs, mixing well. Spoon the batter into the tin, and bake for 1 ½ hours or until done.
