CHRISTMAS FRUIT CAKE



EASY CHRISTMAS FRUIT CAKE
(This is an old family recipe for a Christmas Fruit Cake that doesn’t require the fruits to be soaked in rum beforehand. It could be made as when required. It could also be steamed instead of baking if desired)

Ingredients
2 cups plain flour
½ cup butter
½ cup sugar
1 cup mixed dry fruits chopped
1 teaspoon finely grated orange rind
2 eggs beaten
1 teaspoon baking powder
A pinch of salt
½ cup cold milk
½ cup bread crumbs

Sift the flour, salt and baking powder together and empty in a suitable bowl. Add the butter and rub finely with the finger tips. Add the sugar, bread crumbs and chopped dry fruit and orange rind. Mix all these ingredients lightly together. Add the milk and eggs and using a fork mix all together to a semi stiff batter without beating. When evenly mixed, pour the batter in a buttered baking dish. Bake at 180 C for about 45 minutes or more till done. (check by inserting a toothpick in the cake. If it comes out clean then remove from the oven)

Keep aside to cool.

  2. Hello Ria
    You could try to use 3 tablespoons of condensed milk instead of the egg.
    I'm not sure if it would be as soft as it should be since the eggs are omitted
