Mini Fruit Cakes or Fruit Puddings: from another site.
2 cups self-raising flour
1 1/2 cups caster sugar
finely grated zest of 1 lemon
200g Fruit Mince. ( Home made is best ) but shop bought will do.
1 cup raisins
1/4 cup cooking oil
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
icing sugar for dusting
Preheat oven to 180°C.
Spray 6-8 small individual cake tins (Christmas trees are a great option, as pictured). Alternatively, for large cakes use a 23cm cake tin.
Place all ingredients into a mixing bowl and mix gently with a wooden spoon until smooth. Pour into cake tins.
Bake for 35-45 minutes (50-60 minutes for a large cake) until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.
Cool for 5 minutes in cake tin before turning out onto a wire rack.
Dust with icing sugar and serve with cream.#1663854BJB January 23, 2018 at 8:02 am

“Christmas Ice Cream”, but this year used a tub of Hokey Pokey Ice cream (usually use French Vanilla flavour). I leave the ice cream out of the freezer to soften, remove half of the tub and stir in a tub of Christmas Fruit mince, dark chocolate chips, pinch of cinnamon and cloves, a dash of either brandy essence, rum essence or baileys and stir well. Put back in freezer and leave overnight – usually disappears very fast on Christmas day.#1683802BJB June 14, 2018 at 8:04 am
