225g (8oz) butter (or good margerine)
225g (8oz) castor sugar
225g (8oz) self raising flour
225g (8oz) dried mixed fruit
4 eggs
Pinch of salt

Handy Hint

If the fruit is mixed gradually with the flour it will not sink to the bottom of the cake


1. Pre-heat oven to 180C.
2. Cream the butter and sugar together.
3. Add one egg, 55g of the flour and 55g of fruit at a time and mix well until all the ingredients are mixed together . This stops the fruit sinking to the bottom of the cake.
2. Bake in oven for about 2 hours or until golden brown and skewer comes out clean from centre of cake.
