Pineapple Fruit Cake Recipe
Anyway a lot of you out there have expressed interest in mine which is actually this one below..
Pineapple Fruit Cake
1 x 450g can of crushed pineapple (golden circle it's their recipe)
125g (1/4lb) butter or margarine
375g (12oz) pkt mixed fruit
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon of mixed spices
1 teaspoon of bi-carbonate of soda
pinch of salt
2 beaten eggs
I cup Self raising flour
1 cup plain flour
Boil the first 7 ingredients in a saucepan for 10 minutes. Allow mixture to cool. Add sifted flours and beaten eggs. Place mixture in to a 18cm (7inch) square tin or as desired lined with baking paper.
Cook for 1 hour at 160 degrees C or 320F. Test with skewer. Leave in the tin for 5 minutes then turn on to the rack to cool. Store in an airtight container. Decorate with pineapple pieces if you desire.
If you make it I hope you and yours enjoy it as much as we do. It is so versatile...it is our Christmas cake our take camping cake and it is my never fail "have to take a plate" cake. I can take no credit for it as for years it was on the back of the old Aussie favourite tin of Golden Circle crushed pineapple.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish all of my lovely friends out there, those who leave me comments, and those of you who are too shy to and still read my ramblings a very Merry Christmas and all blessings for the coming New Year. Your kindnesses have added to the my daily Joy xx
May you have Peace in your words,
May you have Peace in your Heart,
Blessings Michelle xxx
