  • 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.

  • 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.

  • you can substitute lemonade, coffee or any other liquid for the peach tea and it will taste just as nice, Be careful with suggesting its a diabetic cake, as the dried fruits contain a heap of natural sugars.
