Simple Christmas fruit Cakes/Muffins



12 portion(s)


  • 350 g Chocolate or plain milk
  • 50 g liquer or flavoured syrup or sweetener
  • 250 g Self Raising Flour
  • 450 g mixed dried fruit
  • 50 g Whole blanched almonds, plus extra to decorate

Recipe's preparation

    cakes / muffins
  1. weigh fruit, almonds, milk and liquer or syrup/sweetener into the TM bowl.

    Place the TM bowl in the fridge for a min of 4 hours (overnight if possible) to allow the fruit to soak.

  2. add flour and mix 30 secsonds / REVERSE / speed 3

    until combined. Use spatula to help and to scrape sides if necessary.

  3. place (heaped) 1/4 cup of mix into each baking paper lined

    or greased muffin hole and decorate with additional almonds

    and/or cherries.

    bake 150 degrees Fan forced for approx 30min (until cake tester comes out clean)



I have made these with sherry, frangelico and with butterscotch syrup (instead of alcohol).

You can add a tablespoon of mixed spice or cocoa for a more 'Christmas' or Chocolate flavour.

This idea was from the 60sec fruit cakes in 'Devil of a cookbook' I found them a little

too moist like a pudding and wanted to add flavour. These freeze well and can

be eaten cold or warmed.

NOTE - these will stick to PAPER muffin/patty cases. Use baking paper cases or

grease the holes. I use Multix cafe collection muffin wraps.
