Boiled Fruit Cake

As a kid we used to love it when Mum made this cake it is a great cake to eat, yummy!

Ingredients

3/4 lb Mixed Fruit
1 tsp Mixed Spice
1/4 lb Butter
1 cup Water
2 1/2 oz Mixed Peel
1 cup Sugar
1 tsp Bi-carb Soda
1 cup Self Raising Flour
2 Eggs

Method
  • Preheat oven to 170 degrees Celsius and grease a 9 inch round cake tin
  • Put all ingredients into a large saucepan except the flour and eggs
  • Bring mixture to the boil, then allow to cool
  • Add flour and eggs to cooled mixture
  • Pour in greased tin and bake for 1 1/2 hours

If making for a diabetic you can replace some of the mixed fruit with carrot and/or dates.
