3 ingredient cake
Delicious cake using the barest minimum
Cook Time2 hrs 30 mins
Total Time2 hrs 30 mins
Servings: 16 slices
- 600 g dried fruit mixed, with peel, around £1.74
- 600 ml liquid I used cold tea
- 300 g flour self raising, 45p value flour/1.5kg, 9p
In a large bowl, mix the mixed fruit and liquid together and leave to soak overnight.
Please don’t miss out this step, you will get an unsatisfactory result if you do.
The next day, stir through the flour.
The mix needs to be just moist, it’s not very wet. I added a bit too much liquid and had to cook it for a good bit longer.
Put it all in a prepared 20cm tin (lined or buttered), and bake at 160°C for 1 hour or until cooked through.

Test this with a sharp knife pushed in the cake. If it comes out dry, the cake is done, if wet, cook it for a bit longer.
Leave to firm in the tin for a bit, then remove and leave to cool on a rack.
Slice when cold and store in an airtight container, or in the freezer.
