I first made this boiled fruitcake recipe for Christmas but now I use it all year round. I have made errors and forgot ingredients and it is very forgiving, I haven't made one I can't eat yet.
400g dried mixed fruit,
140g glace cherries
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 teaspoon mixed spice
1 cup (250ml) milk
2 1/2 cups (340g) self raising flour
1/2 teaspoon bicarb soda
- Preheat oven to 160 degrees C. Line one 20cm deep-sided cake tin with baking paper.
- Place the dried fruit, cherries, sugar, butter, mixed spice and milk in a medium sized saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes. Let mixture cool.
- Stir in the eggs then sift in the flour and bicarb soda. When well combined pour the batter into the prepared tin.
- Bake for 2 hours. Remove cake from oven and allow it to cool in the tin for 5 minutes, then turn it out onto a cake rack, remove baking paper and let cool.
