Refrigerator Fruit Cake

This hot spell has put a stop to baking in our house. Unfortunately it hasn't put a stop to the desire for something sweet to enjoy with a morning cuppa.  No bake recipes are perfect for hot weather. They are quick, easy and don't heat up the house.  Try this Refrigerator Fruit Cake, it is delicious. Cut it into very thin slices as it is quite rich.

1 1/2 cups finely crushed Weet-bix
1 cup mixed fruit
1 cup raisins
1 cup dates
1/4 cup honey
3/4 cup orange juice
1 cup coconut
1 cup toasted wheatgerm

Chop dates and raisins. Put  into a heat-proof bowl and cover fruit with boiling water. Cover the bowl and leave for 10 minutes. Drain. Combine all ingredients and mix well.  Press into a slice tin lined with baking paper.  Cover with a sheet of baking paper. Place a weight on top (I use dry rice) and set in the fridge for 24 hours. Use a sharp knife to cut into thin slices.
