Alternative fruit cake idea

Alternative fruit cake idea

Hi. I've spent the morning trying out two recipes and thought I would post a photo of them.

The sliced cake is a really interesting recipe Zest posted 9 days ago. Full of seeds, mixed dried fruit, cherries and bananas -I used an egg in my version. It is a recipe adapted from one by Ruth-canal-runner. Many thanks. It is delicious.

The tea loaves, still in wraps, is a really easy recipe courtesy of Bero and can be found at be-ro.co.uk

It is called Brack and I have altered the recipe to make it with only 300g of mixed fruit instead of 425g. I cut it into 12 slices,-around 140 cals a slice. It freezes well. Delicious with a cup of tea and not too sweet.

Hi Roset16,

It is very exciting to see your cakes - and they look amazing! I am going to look at the Brack recipe - it looks great.

Like you say, delicious with a cup of tea - I'm going to tag Ruth_canal_runner so she can be sure to see your lovely post.

You're welcome. By the way if you make it with different sugar it can give quite a different flavour. - worth experimenting.
