Christmas is only 2 more weeks away! My family do not celebrate this particular holiday :D but I usually loves to whip up something to feel the merry merry festive :D

mixed fruits soaked in brandy

Recipe adapted from Alex Goh 'Easy Stir & Bake Cakes'
  • 150gm plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp mixed spices
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 80gm light brown sugar
  • 100ml corn oil
  • 200gm mixed fruits
  • 45ml brandy
  1. Soak mixed fruits with brandy, preferably overnight.
  2. Sift plain flour, baking powder, baking soda and mixed spices together into a mixing bowl. Make a well in the center.
  3. Combine eggs, brown sugar and corn oil and stir till sugar dissolves.
  4. Coat the mixed fruits with some of the flour mixture.
  5. Pour the eggs mixture into the flour and fold to combine. Stir in mixed fruits at the same time.
  6. Pour batter into a lined 8" cake pan and bake in preheated oven at 160 deg cel for 35-40mins until a skewer inserted comes out clean. Stand for 10mins before unmoulding. Cool completely on wire rack. Decorate as desired.

Hi, would like to make this cake too. Can replace brandy with rum? Will it be the same amt? Will it make a difference if to omit the mix spice?

Can use same amt of rum to soak the fruits. As for spice, can be omitted.
