Method: Simple Fruit Cake Recipe

- Stir together the oil and sugar, add the eggs, flour, baking powder, spices, and juices, and mix thoroughly with a wooden spoon until pourable and reasonably runny.
- Gently fold in the fruit, then divide the batter evenly between the tins. Bake for 20-25 mins or until a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean, then leave to cool.
