ICCHFC: Week 51 - Johnny’s granny’s fruit cake mash up (aka fruit loaf)

Sara used a secret recipe to create and incredibly light and yet rich fruit loaf. I have never had such a fluffy cake laden so heavily with fruit. An absolute beauty.

So it is with great pride that I bring you the secret recipe and I can promise you will not be disappointed.

Johnny’s granny’s fruit cake mash up

6oz soft brown sugar
8oz soft butter
2 eggs
4oz self-raising flour
4oz plain flour
12oz mixed fruit
2oz ground almonds
Small glass of Amaretto (about 100 -150ml)

1.Combine the butter and sugar then add the rest of the ingredients. The mixture shouldn't be too dry but not runny!
2. Bake in moderate oven (gas mark 3 to 4, 160-175°C) for 1.5 to 2 hours (stick a skewer in to see if it's cooked)


  1. This looks mighty, I love a good oul' fashioned fruit loaf. nice work :)

  2. It was surprisingly good. Kudos goes to Sara though as she baked it, I just got to eat it! ;-)
