What you need to make a gluten free Christmas cake

  • 1 packet All Purpose Cake Mix
  • 3 Eggs
  • 500g mixed dried fruit
Method 
  1. In a bowl combine mixed fruit and brandy to soak overnight, if required add water to just cover the fruit. Leave overnight refrigerated.
  2. Preheat your oven to 160°C and strain the fruit.
  3. In a large bowl combine All Purpose cake mix, eggs and oil from the soaked fruit. Mix by hand or with an electric mixer until all ingredients are well combined and mixture is smooth.
  4. Grease and line two square tins or use mini tins like in the pictures. Spoon the mixture into the cake tins, and set to bake for 60 minutes. Bake for less time if you use several smaller tins. Remove when browning on top and a skewer inserted removes clean. 
  5. Leave cake to cool in the tins.
