Gluten Free Fruit Slice

image

There is something really lovely about using a dried fruit mix in baking.  It seems so traditional.  Maybe it reminds me of my Grandma, who baked huge beautiful fruitcakes every year at Christmas.  These days I don’t think there is as many rules to baking.  For example: grain free baking? who would have thought!  The sky is the limit when it comes to imagining weird and wonderful recipes in the kitchen.  Anyway this is a lovely little fruit slice that can be made quickly.  You don’t have to start soaking your fruit to use it in six months time eeek!  Enjoy:)

Ingredients:

2 cups dried fruit mix

200g butter

1 cup brown sugar

2 eggs

1 heaped cup GF plain flour

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 cup milk

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp nutmeg

How To Do It:

Preheat your oven to 180c, and line a 25cm square cake tin.  Place the fruit mix in a large bowl and cover with milk and vanilla.  Cream the softened butter and sugar together until a little pale then add the eggs one at a time. Add the sugar butter mixture to the fruit and milk.  Sift over the flour and spices.  Spoon into your prepared cake tin.  Bake for about 50-60 minutes.  Watch the top of the cake and cover it with foil, if the top starts to get too brown.

Happy Baking 🙂
