Ingredients

  • 500g Self-raising flour
  • 250g Butter
  • 360g Mixed dried fruit
  • 180g Sugar
  • 100ml Milk

Method

  • STEP 1
    Preheat the oven to 190°C. Line a medium, square cake tin.
  • STEP 2
    Rub the butter into the flour until it's the texture of fine breadcrumbs. Add the sugar and fruit and mix well. Add the milk and mix to a soft, stiff dough.
  • STEP 3
    Press into the cake tin, pushing down firmly in the corners. Score the top of the cake with a sharp knife, making criss-cross diagonal lines.
  • STEP 4
    Place in the middle of the preheated oven and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until golden brown and a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  • STEP 5
    Remove from the oven and while still warm, brush with milk and give a generous sprinkling of granulated sugar. Allow to cool and cut generous slices.
