Christmas is just seven days away and your to-do list is probably quite long – but it’s not too late to bake this quick and easy fruit cake.
- 1kg dried fruit
- 600ml chocolate milk
- 2 cups self-raising flour
Place fruit and milk into a bowl, cover with gladwrap and chill overnight. Sift flour into fruit, stir to combine. Spoon into a greased and lined 22 cm round cake tin. Bake for one hour at 160°C.
Or, why not bake it in muffin tins, cooking time 25 – 30 minutes, and wrap individually in clear cellophane, with some Christmas ribbon for a unique, home made gift.
