FRUIT AND NUT Christmas Cakes

FRUIT AND NUT Christmas Large cake
I made these up for the teachers presents, but forgot to post before you go anyways, for the record... cheers.

2 kg mixed fruit and raw mixed nuts, I bought 2 lots of 750g Woolworths Tassie. (close enough)
3/4 cup plain flour, I did use a little less.
1/2 teaspoon baking powder.
3 eggs, I used our very own chookies eggs which are a little smallish...
3/4 cup sugar, I used a little less for my (1.5kg mix)
1 teaspoon vanilla.

  • Turn oven on 150C. 
  • Grease and line a 20cm square tin
  • Mix fruit and nuts with sifted flour and baking powder 
  • Beat eggs and sugar until light and creamy
  • Mix everything well
  • Bake for 2 to 2.5 hours, don't burn it.
  • Remove and when cool wrap in plastic wrap, then foil to store in an airtight container in the fridge. OR EAT IT...

FRUIT AND NUT Christmas smaller cakes

Do all of the above, but use smaller tins and for less time in the oven.
I have successfully made this recipe into six smaller tins and cooked for 1.5 hours.


This recipe made six smaller ones...Perfect!
ALL wrapped in cellophane with stash of ribbon just for year I'll have to use my Stampin' UP ribbon

Have fun.
