Lovely little fruit cake perfect for a Christmas gift or morning tea. Modified version of the 3 ingredient Christmas fruit cake. Fits perfectly in the 1.5L slow cooker.
2 hrs 5 mins
300gm mixed dried fruit
300ml liquid (I used 200ml chocolate milk 100ml Baileys)
1 cup SR flour
1Soak dried mixed fruit in container overnight with 300mls of chosen liquid.
2Sift 1 cup SR flour into the mixture but by bit until combined.
3Grease 1.5L slow cooker bowl with butter and coat in flour or line with baking paper.
4Pour mixture into SC.
5Cook for 2 hrs on high with tea towel under the lid (turning the bowl occasionally to avoid any hot spots)
6You can substitute the liquid for anything you like! Rum + orange juice, iced coffee, etc.

I’ve now made over a dozen of these cakes over the last 3 months and love them .
The only thing I change from time to time is to use gluten free flour and Xanthan gum and you can’t taste the difference.

I made this today with orange juice & brandy. It burnt a little around the edges, I had kept turning the bowl so I think I will double layer the baking paper next time. Was still a nice cake, nice & light. Doing it with chocolate milk & baileys tomorrow x
