Moist fruit cake

Another Annette Syms recipe, this time from Symply too good to be true vol 1.

Ours turned out darker than the recipe in the book. 2 were for my family and one for my mother and both have the same dark tint. It smells divine and i'll upload another picture once we have cut into it.

2 cups of S.R flour

3 cups (500g) mixed dried fruit

3 egg whites

1 cup mashed pumpkin (250g raw)

1/2 cup water

1 tsp bicarb soda

1 tsp mixed spice

Preheat oven 180 c

Place fruit, sugar, spice and water in a saucepan and boil for 3 mins

Stir in bicarb soda and leave to cool

Boil or microwave pumpkin, drain and mash then leave to cool

Mix pumpkin and fruit together and stir the egg whites in well

Fold in flour

Pour mixture into 19cm (8inch) round tin coated with cooking spray and bake for aprox 1 hour


Replace pumkin with sweet potato and increas count by 70kj (17 cals) per slice.
