Light Fruit Cake



  • 175g unsalted butter
  • 175g light brown soft sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 250g Self raising flour
  • 2-3 tbsp milk
  • 300g mixed dried fruit


In a bowl beat the butter and sugar until pale and creamy, then beat in the eggs one at a time, adding flour little by little.

Fold in the remaining flour and the milk. Add all the dried fruit and fold until well combined.

Line a tin with parchment paper, spoon in the mixture, level it and bake in an oven of 180 degrees C for 1 to 1 1/2 hour until firm.

Insert a skewer or knife in the middle if it comes out clean, its done.

Leave to cool and remove the baking parchment.
