Three Ingredients Fruit Cake

It just doesn't get any easier than this for a delicious fruit cake... A big thanks has to go to a helpful couple Ken and Rosemary that we met on our recent travels North from home. Not only did they suggest a fabulous spot for us to park at the Cliff Head free camp site area but they also provided me with this recipe suggestion for my blog. 

This is a rich, moist, heavily fruit abundant cake... dare I say suitable for the upcoming festive season or an any time of the day, night or the year indulgence.

Three Ingredients Fruit Cake


  • Take a 600ml Iced coffee or Choc Milk and add it to 1kg of mixed fruit. Soak this mixture overnight to plump up the fruit. 
  • Add 2 cups of self raising flour and bake slowly in a 170/180 oven for about an hour and a half until a wooden skewer comes out clean... and that's it!  

Turn out to cool on a wire rack and share both the delicious cake and the simple recipe with everyone at your camp sight.


Equally wonderful served warm on its own or with a blob of cream or cold on its own or with butter.

Note: The soaking of the fruit causes the glace cherries to take on the colour of the milk and loose the red colour but doesn't change the flavours of the fruits.
