I found this nice simple recipe, Prune and raisin loaf cake. This time I used mixed fruit instead of just plain raisins. I soaked the fruits and prunes in orange juice and I did not add sugar to the recipe. I also used ordinary plain flour instead of rice or gluten free flour.
What you need
150g mixed fruit
150g soft pitted prunes
75g soft brown sugar
150ml orange juice
1 egg – free range
100g plain flour
100g ground almonds
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp mixed sweet spices
What you do
Soak the fruit in the 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.
This is the second time I have made this. I cooked for 50 minutes the second time round.
