Prune and mixed fruits loaf cake

Now we’ve started on the prunes…

I have bags of mixed fruit in my living room ‘pantry’, seemed a fitting substitute for raisins. I used orange juice to soak the prunes and mixed fruit. Again I did not add sugar to this recipe as it was sweet enough.

The loaf was made on Saturday and was finished by Monday!

What you need

  • 150g raisins or sultanas
  • 150g soft pitted prunes
  • 75g soft brown sugar
  • 150ml cider, strong tea or fruit juice (apple or orange is good)
  • Oil spray
  • 1 egg – free range
  • 100g rice flour or gluten free flour
  • 100g ground almonds
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp mixed sweet spices

What you do

  • Soak the fruit in the cider,tea or juice for a couple of hours, stir in the sugar until dissolved in a large baking bowl. I leave it covered with a tea towel in the kitchen
  • Oil spray and base line a 2lb loaf tin
  • Pare heat the oven to 170c
  • Sieve the flour, almonds, baking powder and spices on to a plate ready for adding to the bowl
  • Add the sieved flour and egg to the bowl containing the soaked fruits, mix thoroughly and then turn into the prepared loaf tin
  • Bake for 50 to 55 mins until golden and well risen
  • Cool initially in the tin and then cool fully on a wire rack
  • Stores well in an airtight tin.
