As for the Icing:

  • 1 and 12 cups of flour for all purposes

  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 12 cup of butter, unsalted and softened

  • To make the Fruit Soak (this step is optional):
  • 1 cup of a variety of dried fruits
  • 12 cup of rum or fruit juice (your choice)

Voici les directives:

  1. Get the Fruit Soak ready (this step is optional):

If you want your fruit cake to have a more robust flavor, start by rehydrating the dried fruits in rum or fruit juice the night before you bake it. Give them some time to rest, preferably the night before.

  1. Put the oven on to preheat:

Prepare your oven by preheating it to 325 degrees Fahrenheit (160 degrees Celsius). Grease and flour a round cake pan measuring 9 inches in diameter.

  1. Sort the Dry Ingredients with a Sieve:

Flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt should all be combined and sifted together in a basin. Put to the side.

  1. Combine the sugar and butter in a mixer:

In a separate dish, beat the butter that has been softened with the granulated sugar until it is fluffy and light.

  1. Stir in the Eggs and the Vanilla:

After beating in each egg one at a time, add the vanilla essence and continue beating. Continue to stir until everything is thoroughly mixed.

  1. Combine the Dry Ingredients, Including:

Add the dry ingredients that have been sifted into the butter mixture in stages, alternating with the addition of sour cream. Dry ingredients should be used first and last in the recipe.

  1. Gently fold in the fruit:

Mix the mixed dried fruits (from the soak, if you used it) with the fresh fruits in a gentle folding motion.

  1. Bake:

After the cake pan has been prepped, pour the batter into it and smooth the top. Bake in an oven that has been warmed for approximately 45-55 minutes, or until a toothpick that has been inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

  1. Let It Rest and Serve:

After allowing the fruit cake to cool for approximately ten minutes in the prepared pan, remove it and place it on a wire rack to finish cooling completely.

Concluding remarks:

And there you have it: an appetizing fruit cake that will undoubtedly leave an impression on your loved ones and close acquaintances. The traditional fruit cake gets a wonderful makeover thanks to the use of a mixture of fresh and dried fruits. This fruit cake is sure to be a hit at any gathering you take it to, whether you serve it as a dessert with a dab of whipped cream or as a sweet treat with your afternoon tea.
