Classic Fruit Cake

Nothing says Christmas in Australia quite like a good old fashioned Fruit Cake.

My go-to recipe for years is simple, moist & only 3 ingredients!


I shared this recipe on my Facebook page last year, before starting this blog, and it was enormously popular! In fact, it was still being shared & baked only last week!

Simply bung a 1kg bag of dried fruit into a large mixing bowl before pouring over 2 cups of very strong black coffee then pop the bowl in the fridge to soak the fruit for 2 days.

On the 3rd day, remove the now plumped up juicy fruit from the fridge & throw 2 cups of self raising flour into the bowl. Give it a jolly good mix to form a stiff batter.

Pour that lot into a greased cake tin & whack in a 150c oven for 1 & 1/2 hours to bake.

Easy! There, you have my simplest Christmas Fruit Cake ever!
