A light, moist, crumbly fruit cake, packed with plump raisins, sultanas, currants, cranberries and mixed peel. This cake is a nice alternative to traditional fruit cakes used for wedding and christmas cakes but still makes an excellent base for icing and decorating and making tiered cakes.


  • 250g of Stork
  • 12 oz of Self Raising Flour
  • 6 oz of Caster Sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 120z Dried Mixed Fruit Including Cranberries
  • 200ml of Cranberry Juice
  • 200ml of Orange Juice
  • tbsp Mixed Spice


  • STEP 1
    First soak the dried fruit in the cranberry and orange juice. Allow this to soak whilst you prepare the rest of the ingredients.
  • STEP 2
    In a large mixing bowl cream the sugar and stork until pale.
  • STEP 3
    Add the mixed spice to the flour and sieve half of the flour and one egg to the mixture, beating well.
  • STEP 4
    Then repeat this with the remaining flour and egg.
  • STEP 5
    Drain the fruit from the juices, and then add to the mixture.
  • STEP 6
    Pour the mixture into a 9-10 inch cake tin and cook in the oven for 1 hour 45 mins at 130c until the cake is firm to touch.
  • STEP 7
    Remove from the oven and allow to cool for at least 2 hours before tucking in!
