1-yr blog anniversary and Fruit Cake

>> Friday, April 16, 2010




It's hard to believe one year ago I posted my first entry on this blog. So much has happened since then. I've met many amazing foodies and improved my baking and cooking skills. As well I've found a new love: photography. I want to thank all of you who read and comment and support my passion for food. It's been a blast!

To mark this occasion, I made a fruit cake.   



Ingredients :
  1. Dried cherries - 1/8 cup
  2. Dried berries - 1/2 cup
  3. Raisins - 1/4 cup
  4. Sultanas - 1/4 cup
  5. Currants - 1/4 cup
  6. Chopped candied citron - 1 tbsp
  7. Dark rum - 1/4 cup
  8. Butter - 1/2 cup
  9. Brown sugar - 1/4 cup
  10. Egg - 1 no
  11. All purpose flour - 1/2 cup
  12. Baking soda - 1/8 tsp
  13. Salt - 1/4 tsp
  14. Ground mixed spice  - 1/2 tsp
  15. Milk - 2 tbsp
  16. Dark rum - 1/4 cup 



Direction to bake :

1.   Soak cherries, Sultanas, raisins, berries, currants & citron in 1/4 cup rum for one day.  Cover tightly & store at room temperature.

2.   Cream the butter & brown sugar until fluffy.  Beat in egg.

3.   Sieve together flour, baking soda, salt & spice powder.  Mix into butter & sugar, alternating with milk.  Stir in the soaked fruits.

4.   Bake in preheated oven at 325 F for 45 mins or until done.  Cool in the pan for 15 min & sprinkle the 2 tbsp of rum on the top & sides of cake.  




Store it in the airtight container.
