Kendall's Fruit Cake

Submitted by: PHRASER

Introduction

Not a diet food, but a healthier fruit cake than many. The fibre is actually higher than the nutrition information indicates, as fibre content isn't regularly reported on packaging here. I'm sure there's a lot more fibre in the fruit, nuts and flour than the calculator indicates.

You could easily get 40 or more slices from this cake.

Number of Servings: 40

Ingredients

    1 kg packet mixed dried fruit (for fruit cake)
    1 cup black tea (brewed from teabag, not sweetened)
    1 cup orange juice (real orange juice, not fruit drink)
    2 cups wholemeal flour
    3 tsp baking powder
    140g raw mixed nuts, chopped (or 70g slivered almonds and 70g chopped walnuts)
    2 generous tsp ground cinnamon
    2 tsp mixed spice
    2 tsp vanilla essence

Directions

1/ Soak the fruit in tea preferably overnight, but at least for a couple of hours.

2/ Preheat oven to 160 degrees celcius on fan bake setting. Place the rack just under halfway.

3/ Line the bottom and sides of a 20cm square cake tin with baking paper.

4/ Mix in the remaining ingredients with soaked fruit, except for about 1/3 of the nuts (if you're using almonds and walnuts, put the walnuts in but keep the almonds aside for now)

5/ Spoon into the tin. Sprinkle with reserved mixed nuts (or slivered almonds). Bake for approximately 1 1/2 hours or until a skewer stuck into the centre of the cake comes out clean.

6/ Cool, then cut into small fingers as required.

This cake makes at least 40 slices.
