This came from our very close friend who has a catering business and caters for people with various tastes.
- 800 g mixed fruit
- 2 cups orange juice
- 2 cups self-rising flour
- Mix fruit and orange juice and soak overnight.
- Next day add 2 cups self raising flour.
- Put in tin and bake for 1 or 2 hrs at 140-150°C.
- (Scrumptious) (Use skewer to test finish time. When skewer comes out clean cake is done).
I was so glad to find this recipe- I was searching for an egg-free cake as my mother in law is allergic to them and I was making them a cake for their 50th Wedding anniversary. The recipe worked brilliantly, is very easy and won lots of compliments! I doubled the quantity which makes a huge cake (serves about 30) but used only 3 cups of orange juice, as 4 made it too wet. Thank you for posting! Sarah
Tastes a bit like Christmas cake - if that takes your fancy. Don't forget to dilute the orange juice unless you like REALLY tangy cakes!! Easiest recipe I've ever done.
