Method: Simple Fruit Cake Recipe

  • Heat oven to 160C/140C fan/ gas 3. Grease and line the base of two 20cm springform cake tins with baking parchment.
  • 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.
  • When cool, remove from the tins and sandwich the cakes together with jam. Sieve some icing sugar on top to serve.
