'One cup' Fruit medley cake

This has to be THE easiest cake to make. Haven't made this in years, but I used to bake it regularly when the kids were still at home, or when I needed to ' bring a plate' to a get together.
This cake is yummy, delicious and good for you.
So 'ave a go' as we say in Oz... :-)

'One cup' easy peasy fruit medley cake

You will need:
1 cup each of the following:

  1. Fruit Medley
  2. Shredded or desiccated coconut
  3. Milk, Soy milk or any other 'milk' or even water will do
  4. Soft brown sugar
  5. Self Raising Flour.
I left my cake in the oven a little too long! :-)
This is what you do:
  • Heat oven to moderate
  • Grease and/or line loaf tin with baking paper (opt)
  • Mix all dry ingredients together
  • Add liquid (this is quite a runny mix)
  • Pour batter into loaf tin
  • Bake for approximately 45 minutes.
  • Insert knitting needle, fork or skewer to see if cake is cooked.
  • Let cake cool, then cut and spread with butter if desired.
This cake is also yummy hot with custard, cream or icecream.

Variation: Add any kind of raw nuts to the mixture and/or decorate top of cake with nuts before placing in oven. If you don't have fruit medley, you can use any other dried fruits.
