FRUIT CAKE

Photobucket

This is my version of healthy  and not so rich fruit cake but excellent taste. Now I'm using hot tea but you can also opt for hot milk that also works well with this recipe.

For mixed dry fruit, it can easily be replaced with dried cranberries, apricot or prunes, make sure you cut them into small pieces. No worries if you have no time to soak the fruit, you still can go ahead to cook them.

If you are having unexpected guest, this is great a treat for them which is so easy and takes less time to prepare. Hope you will enjoy this as much as we do.

FRUIT CAKE

1 C rolled oat
1 C all purpose flour
1 C dry fruit mix
1 C hot tea/milk
3/4 C sugar
2 T melted butter
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

METHOD

*  Soak fruit mix in hot tea for 15 minutes. Grease your 7 in pan.

I always like fruitcakes, they always taste great :)) and with oats its even beter

Stephanie said...

Your fruitcake sounds great and it looks moist and delicious. I like that you lightened it up a little. I bet you could even replace some of the AP flour with whole wheat to make it a little more healthy.

Rachu said...

What a neat recipe. I love that you used tea.

Karunya said...

Loved this recipe.I want to try it out. Can you let me know what is 'rolled oat'? is it the usual instant oat. I use Quaker Oats generally. Is it the same thing?
Pardon my ignorance! Thanks

Treat and Trick said...

Karunya...Rolled oat and instant oat are the same but they are shaped and prepared differently. Rolled oat is cut then rolled flat, it is steamed so this will reduce your cooking time but you can use instant if rolled oat is not available. Please let me know once you have tried this recipe ya...

Karunya said...

Thanks for the reply. I'm going to try it out soon,will let you know :)

Karunya said...

I just tried this one. The fruit cake came out pretty well. I did not see the 2T butter used in the recipe, so I added it with the flour and mixed it in. Thanks for this simple cake recioe :)

Ananda Rajashekar said...

I just love fruit cake in any form...how delicious it would be to enjoy a piece of it :)
