    such a lovely, easy recipe. Very similar to my Mum's old recipe. We add 1tsp mixed spice and half a tsp cinnamon. I also use raw sugar. Fail proof. Always moist. A family favourite 😊

    WINNING CHRISTMAS / FRUIT CAKE!!

    One of my children LOVES fruit cake and I have struggled to find a good (and simple) recipe... until today. This is absolutely delicious and is going to disappear far too quickly!! A very similar recipe is on Cookidoo which gives half the sugar, so that's what I did too, and it is plenty sweet enough (for us) like that. This is going to be a regular all year round for me now. LOVE IT!! Thank you!

    Great training snack. I make this with reduced sugar as something for my son to take on his training rides. It usually doesn’t last long as the rest of the family love it too.

    Very quick, tasty and easy to make. I made in petite loaves & it took 40mins In oven on 160c fan forced. Moist n yummy. I made homemade tm custard to pour over them when they came straight out of the oven. Will def make again. Was like eating xmas pudding...i added 2tbsp of sherry to mixed fruit and stirred it through about 1hr before making. Also added 2tsp mixed spice & 1tsp cinnamon as a few fellow Tm users have done and applied reverse mode in order to keep fruit intact. Thumbs up!!

  • Cake is great and recipe is

    Submitted by Kristen007 on 4. April 2015 - 12:20.

    Cake is great and recipe is exactly like what my mother made, except I added rum to the fruit and soaked it for a couple of hours before I strated recipe tmrc_emoticons.) I too added allspice and cinnamon as always have this in fruit cakes.  Only thing I would do differently is to use reverse when mixing cake as otherwise fruit is too chopped for my liking - but it's a personal preference.

    Wonderful recipe - thanks for sharing.

    Submitted by cruiter on 21. December 2014 - 13:10.

    I replaced 80g of fruit for sultanas soaked in sherry and added a splash of sherry as the flour was stiring in. Also added about a tsp of mixed spice and about 1/2 a tsp of cinnamon.

    Mixture tastes awesome... have not cut a cake yet.
