This is the quickest and easiest fruit cake you'll ever make and it tastes great! Slice and serve with butter or freeze for a quick grab-n-go snack.
Fruity Tea CakeIngredients:
2 cups cold tea
2 cups mixed dried fruit
2 cups SR flour
Soak the fruit in the cold tea for 10 minutes. Beat in the self-raising flour. Pour into a greased and baking paper lined loaf tin. Bake at 180 degrees for 30 - 35 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Let stand in tin for five minutes before turning out onto a cake rack to cool.
Variation: This is so good, it adds a little zing to the cake: substitute dry ginger ale for the cold tea, then follow the recipe. The cake is moist with just a hint of ginger - delicious. I sampled this version at the card making afternoon on Saturday, courtesy of Meg, and I think it will be my favourite quick fruit cake from now on.
