This is a photo of the Fruit cake I made last night. It is my Aunt's recipe, & it is so easy- and delicious!
Here is the Recipe:
2 cups of fresh organge juice. I found 5 lovely Aussie oranges were just right.
1 kilogram of Mixed Fruit. You can add nuts to your taste.
2 cups of Self Raising Flour.
Mix all together well.
Pour into a lined tin. I used non stick baking paper.
Bake in a moderate oven for 1 & 1/2 hours. I set my oven to 160c.
It is not a fan forced oven, so I dont know how you would go with one of those.
I wanted to decorate the top with almonds, but I didnt have any, so the top remained plain. I did add some cinnamon, & about 1/2 a teaspoon of almond essence.
I let the cake cool in the tin, but am not sure what my Aunt does.
It makes a nice cake to either serve plain or it can be 'tarted up' with nuts, cherries or a fancy 'skirt'.
Ideal for BFJ's little Granddaughter S, as it has NO eggs!
Also NO fat... but it IS very sweet.
I had already done this post, when Blogger took it into draft, & try as I might, I could not retrieve it!
It is raining here this morning, & has rained lightly for most of yesterday & last night. How very odd for this time of year. Apparently we have had a very hot Spring- in spite of the odd rainy, & cold days.
Yes Henri, I am enjoying Dylan's new CD, & of course it reminds me of you!
About to play some Bob Seeger, love all those old songs!
