Whatever you do, don’t miss the step of letting your fruit soften over night. This is very important as it softens the fruit.

Our facebook page received lots of comments when we popped this recipe up. Here’s what Sheryll said ..
“I made this as a Christmas cake and added the traditional spices and some blanched almonds to make it more “luxe”. I chose pineapple juice instead of tea and swapped a little of the dried fruit for crushed pineapple for extra moistness as we are soggy cake people. Even my non-fruit cake hubby thought it was delicious” – Sheryll USA
How To Make 3 Ingredient Fruit Cake
- 1 kg mixed fruit
- 3 cups black tea
- 3 cups self-raising flour
Preheat oven to 125 C. Soak fruit in tea overnight. Stir flour into soaked fruit and mix well. Add more tea if the mixture is too dry. It is quite a thick mixture but sometimes the fruit really absorbs the liquid and it is hard to dampen the flour. Spoon mixture into a 22cm lined cake tin. Bake for 2½ hours or until cooked through. Remove and leave to cool. Wrap in tin foil or place in an airtight container. Keeps for a month.
