    Serves: 12 

    • 1 kilo of mixed fruit

    • 1 full rounded teaspoon of mixed spices
    • 2 full cups pure orange juice

    1. Place 1 kilo of mixed fruit mix into a large bowl and mix 2 cups of pure orange juice into the fruit mix.
    2. Stir well, until all juices are mixed thoroughly through; cover bowl with glad wrap and place in fridge overnight.
    3. This allows the orange juices to mix in with the fruit while it is being chilled overnight.
    4. Next day, remove from fridge and then prepare for further mixing . Add in 2 cups of self raising flour & 1 tsp, mixed spices,
    5. Stir thoroughly either by hand or with a cake mixer.

    Used different ingredients. When I made this Christmas cake, I used 2 cups of Brandy to soak my fruit in and it was the best ever.  -  27 Dec 2010  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
