Fruit Cake

First of all wish you all a very happy and prosperous new year!

This is a simple and an easy to make cake from my MIL.

We baked this for the new years' eve.

Do you make new year resolutions? I don't usually make any...but this year I want to try to eat healthy. Not really a resolution...but I just want to try! So keep checking for some healthy recipes...

Another thing I have in my mind is "Go Green" :) the planet! Well...the best place to start with is the kitchen. I want to use less paper( use cloth napkins in kitchen instead of paper towels) and use reusable bags for shopping.

Coming to the cake MIL gave me this recipe that she used to make for my hubby n his sis when they were kids.  My mom too used to make this cake for us when we were kids.

Fruit Cake


All purpose flour: 1  1/4 cup

Sugar: 1 cup

Butter: 1  1/4 sticks

Tuity fruity ( I got these from the Indian store)

Baking Powder: 1tsp

Eggs: 3

Vanilla essence: 1tbsp

Dry fruits( I used Almonds and Cashews)


Grind the sugar into fine powder.

Beat sugar, eggs and butter for 10 minutes and then add the all purpose flour and the baking powder. Beat until the flour is mixed well.

Add vanilla essence and beat for 5 minutes. Add Tuity fruity, almonds and cashwes and mix well.

Coat the baking pan with cooking oil spray and pour the cake mix.

Pre heat the oven at 450 degrees for 5 mins and then  place the baking pan with the cake mix and bake for 30-40 mins.

Check with a tooth pick or a fork to make sure the cake is baked well and the tooth pick comes out dry.

Let the cake cool and then cut into pieces.
