Rich Fruit Cake#SundayFunday

This is a delicious Rick Fruit Cake with awesome flavor. There is no need to soak these in advance. Soak them overnight and they are good to use.

113 Grams Butter
113 Grams Caster Sugar
113 Grams All Purpose Flour
3 Eggs
¼ Teaspoon Baking Powder
¼ Teaspoon Salt
80 Grams Chopped Nuts
400 Grams Chopped Dried Fruits
3 Tablespoons Rum
1 Teaspoon Cake Spice - Homemade
¼ Teaspoon Cinnamon Powder
¼ Teaspoon Nutmeg Powder

I have used golden raisins, sultanas, mixed fruit peel, cranberries, homemade candied grapefruit and sweet lime peels, plums, glazed cherries.
soak all the fruits in 300 Ml rum overnight. An hour before mixing the cake. Place all the soaked dry fruits in a colander to drain off all the rum. Reserve the rum to use it later. 
Add softened butter into a bowl and then add sugar and cream them together until light and fluffy. Add eggs (one at a time)
If you are using vanilla extract ,you can add at this point.
Add in the flour mix (combination of baking powder, salt ) and lightly fold in with a spatula. Fold in the spices and drained fruits into the batter. This smell and flavor is so awesome of this rich fruit cake. Pour it into lined 6" pan's. 
Bake it at 180°C preheated oven for 20 - 25 minutes. As soon as the cake it out of the oven pour in the rums on them. Cool these on a wire rack. These went for my friends.

  1. I think fruitcake gets a bad rap. I happen to love it and your version sounds wonderful

  2. Who says we can only enjoy rich fruit cakes on Christmas? I love them and sometimes bake it to enjoy it for breakfast or with my tea in the afternoon.
