Moist fruit cake

Post  Olly54 on 09.12.12 0:14

Hi All,found this old recipe,just tried it,thought i'd pass it on.Here go's.

Ingredients:
250g of Mixed Fruit,Pour on 250ml of Boiling Water.

6oz Sugar

3oz Butter or Marg

4oz Plain Flour

4oz Self Raising Flour

3 Eggs

1 Heaped teaspoon of Mixed Spice

1 Level teaspoon of Bicarbonate of Soda

Pinch of Salt

Cooking time 75 minutes at 180c


1)Put 250g of Mixed Fruit in a Bowl and pour over 250ml of Boiling Water and stir occasionaly while it's cooling.This swells up the fruit.

2) Put 6 ozs Sugar,3 ozs Butter or Marg in a mixing bowl and cream together.

3) Weigh out 4ozs Plain Flour,4ozs Self Raising flour,1 level teaspoon of Bicarbonate of Soda,1 Heaped teaspoon of Mixed Spice and a pinch of Salt.All together doesn't hurt.Leave in your scales

4) Line a Baking Tin with Greaseproof Paper that fits in your Halogen Oven.

5) Put 2 Tablespoons of your dry mix into the Butter and Sugar creamed mix and mix.

6) Seperate an egg,put the yolk in the creamed mix and save the egg white in a bowl.The 2 tablespoons of dry mix stops the creamed mix and egg yolk curdling.

7) Repeat steps 5 and 6 for 3 eggs in total.

Cool Stir in the remaining Dry mix.

9) Mix in the cooled Mixed fruit and water.

10) Beat the 3 Egg Whites seperate to the mix you have made until it forms soft peaks.

11) Fold the Egg whites mix into the mix you have made carefully so as to keep in the air.

12) Pour all the finished mix into your Baking Tin and put into your Halogen Oven on the Low Rack and add on the Extender Ring.

Set the oven to 180 c for 60 minutes.When the Bell go's at the end of this put some Tin foil over the top of the Baking Tin,I tuck it in.Put the Timer on for another 15 minutes.Take the tin out of the oven and let it cool a little.I remove the Cake from the tin,turn it upside down,put it back on the low rack uncovered.Remove the Extender ring and set the Timer for 10 minutes.It just seems to help.

I've tried this a few times and it seems to work.

Try Sultanas instead also,or add Cherries.If I run out of Mixed Spice I use Cinnamon.You can add or reduce the amount of fruit and so on,thats the enjoyement of cooking eh.

I made this as a Christmas Cake which i'll marzipan and ice.Not as good as a proper one,but maybe next year eh!Hope you try this,I think it's nice.Enjoy

Is bicarbonate of soda the same as baking soda in the US?

Hi Haley
bicarbonate soda and baking soda are the same thing, so you can use it.
Baking Powder has other additives in it.
Another tip is cup measurements and tablespoons are different in other countries.
Our cup in Australia is 250mls and our tablespoon is 20mls.
Reeta will tell you their's

Moist fruit cake

Post  Olly54 on 30.12.12 19:54

Sorry about all the confusion folks,just poured out one of my cups into a measuring jug,as has been said its around 250ml or 10 fluid ounces if thats any use,you don't need anymore than that,slightly less won't hurt.It's just there to swell up the dried fruit.Hope this helps.Ozzie Jude is bang on about the Bicarbonate of Soda,but I have to hold my hands up and tell you all,I did'nt know.I have just typed in "Bicarbonate of Soda in America" in the search engine and got it.Shoud'nt have told you all really,you were probably all impressed!Hope you all had a lovely Christmas.Still luvvin my H/O.
