I found this recipe in 4 ingredients diabetic cookbook however, decided to add almonds as a topping.

  • Love a cake with almonds on top! Can imagine how good this would be with a cup of tea!


  • Sounds lovely, thanks for sharing


  • Looks like a simple recipe, my mum used to make something similar only that had equal amounts of fruit and liquid, usually fruit juice and more flour I think.


  • Personally not diabetic, but will have to make for those in my life who are! Thanks for posting.


  • Interesting use of peach iced tea.


  • Hi just made my first fruit cake but just wondering dose the cake come out sticky. Thanks for your help with this.


  • I can’t wait to make this for a wonderful lady who is a diabetic and just celebrated her 85th birthday.


  • A delicious looking fruit cake. A good one for those with diabetes.

    • Have shared this with friends that need this type of cake recipe. :)


  • I love a good fruit cake and your recipe is easy and delicious!


  • I love this cake – it’s so good! Hadn’t thought to add the almonds and might try that thanks.


  • oh Peach tea how very interesting !!


  • This is a fantastic looking fruit cake.


  • Warning for this recipe. The measurements for the ingredients are wrong.

    I soaked the kilo of dried fruit in 500 mls of the light tea as directed. I was a bit puzzled when the liquid didn’t cover the fruit. I then mixed in the single cup of flour but it didn’t do a thing for the mixture. I poured the “mixture” into a tin and it just looked like soaked dried fruit. Definitely not cake mix. I checked a few similar recipes and discovered I should have used ONE LITRE of light tea and TWO CUPS of self raising flour. Although the cake had been cooking for half an hour, I was able to take it out, mix in the extra ingredients, and now it looks like a cake. It was nearly an expensive mistake.

    • Interesting that it started out as a 4 ingredient cake, an ingredient was added (almonds), but it was still only 4 ingredients.


  • It sounds really good but still high in sugars for a diabetic.


  • yum…..sounds wonderful and not just for diabetics.
    Ive never been keen on the icing for Christmas cakes so the nuts work perfectly for me.
