Orange Fruit Cake

Seriously I'm not a fan of fruit cake, but is nice to bake some as gifting for the coming Christmas holidays!  This is a non-alcoholic fruit cake whereby the kids can enjoy too! 

I love how the mixed fruits evenly distributed throughout the cake :D

Recipe ref : WendyinKK
  • 150gm glace cherries, coarsely chopped
  • 300gm mixed dried fruits (raisins, currants & sultanas)
  • 200ml orange juice
  • 2 heaped tbsp orange zests
  • 250gm butter
  • 120gm sugar
  • 225gm plain flour
  • 4 large eggs

  1. Macerate all the fruits and zest with orange juice overnight.
  2. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Beat in eggs, one at at time, beating well after each addition.
  4. Sift in flour and beat till well combine.
  5. Fold in macerated fruits and juice.
  6. Pour batter into a lined loaf pan and bake in preheated oven at 160 deg cel for 1 hour or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.
