Fruit Cake

2 lb (900g) dried fruit
1 pint (570ml) rice or soya milk
7 floz (200ml) vegetable oil
1 lb (455g) self raising wholemeal flour
2 oz (55g) ground almonds
1 tbsp molasses
Rind of 1 lemon
Pinch of allspice

  1. Mix in given order.
  2. Beat well and pour into well lined greased 23cm (9 inch) cake tin.
    Cover top with greaseproof paper. Bake 2 hours 150C/300F/gas mark 2 then reduce to 130C/250F/gas mark 1 and bake for 1- 2hours.
  3. Cool in tin: a tin with a detachable base is best.
  4. Can be covered with jam and a large packet of white or coloured marzipan for special occasions.

The recipe itself tastes very delicious! I wonder, when this cake will get baked, it will smell so sweet and wonderful. I am crazy for cheese layer which you mentioned that we can add, I guess increases the softness in the cafe. Too much mouth-watering one! Also, I like vanilla and orange/ lemon flavour, but as this is something new, gonna surely try for it.
