Easy Peasy Healthy Fruit Cake (Gluten Free)

    55 minutes

    This throw together” fruit cake is not a decadent fruit cake but is scrumptious nonetheless. I offer it to you as a perfect natural rescue remedy for any sugar cravings, or as a quick easy cake for surprise guests. You could literally throw this together and be chowing down in under an hour.

    Serves: 10 

    • 500gms mixed dried fruit
    • 1 (425 gm) tin sliced mango in natural juice (not sugared syrup)
    • 2 organic eggs
    • 1/2 cup filtered water
    • 1/2 cup white rice flour
    • 1/2 cup brown rice flour
    • 1/2 cup potato flour
    • 1 tsp xanthan
    • 1 tsp gluten free baking powder
    • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
    • pinch of sea salt

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:45min  ›  Ready in:55min 

    1. Preheat an oven to 160 degrees C
    2. Put fruit, water and contents of the whole tin of mangoes (including the natural juice) into a saucepan.
    3. Bring to the boil and simmer just for a minute.
    4. Sieve the flours, baking powder, baking soda, xanthan and salt together.
    5. Beat the eggs lightly in your mixer and gradually combine all the ingredients together.
    6. Place in a greased round tin lined with baking paper.
    7. Bake for about 45 minutes to an hour until a skewer comes out clean.


    The magic ingredient in this recipe is the mango. Try to purchase mango tinned in natural fruit juice instead of sugar syrup. If you can’t find this tinned mango, you could always use fresh or frozen mango with a 1/4 cup of organic apple juice.
