This 3 Ingredient Christmas Cake is one of the cheapest and easiest fruit cakes you can make, and of course it isn’t just good at Christmas time, it’s perfect all year round! You can decorate the cake any way you like, with icing, icing sugar or just left as is. It’s also great cut up into small squares and decorated, then wrapped in cellophane and given as a gift.
You can pick up bags if mixed fruit from the supermarket, or chop up your own dried fruit mixed in with sultanas. I used sultanas, dried apricots and dates (a kg total of fruit). You can soak your fruit in anything you like, as long as it’s liquid. I have previously used fruit juice, but used chocolate flavoured milk this time.
- 1 kilogram Mixed Fruit or 1kg total of any dried fruit you like
- 2 cups Fruit Juice, any flavour
- 2 cups Self Raising Flour
Mix fruit and juice in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
The next day, add flour to fruit mixture and stir to combine.
Pour into cake tin and bake at 125 degrees for 2 hours.
