Farmhouse Fruit Cake Fingers - Recipe

A fruity cake for a tea time treat!

We have used almonds, vine fruit and apricots, but you can use your favourite fruit and nuts to create your perfect cake.

We used a 6in square tin to make our fruit cake fingers, but if you would like a larger circular cake we recommend a 7" Circular tin.

Ingredients:

- 60g Coconut Oil
- 100g Unsalted Butter, softened
- 70g Ground Almonds
- 100g plain flour
- 2 Free-range Eggs , lightly beaten
- 1 tsp Baking Powder
- 2 tsp Almond Extract
- 150g Xylitol
- 2 tbsp orange water
- 2 tsp orange peel
- 2 tsp lemon peel
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- Juice of one large orange
- 300g mixed vine fruit
- 8 chopped apricots
- 100g almond flakes

Method:

Pre heat the oven to 170C/325F/gas 3. Grease and line the cake tin.

1) Beat the butter, and xylitol together in a bowl until pale and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating after each addition (if the mixture looks curdled add a spoonful of the flour). In a separate bowl add orange water, orange juice, orange peel, lemon peel and lemon juice and set aside.

2) Fold in flour, ground almonds, almond essence and baking powder followed by the fruit & nuts. Combine and finally fold in the orange and lemon mixture

3) Spoon the mixture into the cake tin, cook for 30 mins, and then adjust the temperature to gas mark 2 and cook for a further 1 hour and 45 mins until golden and risen. Test whether the mixture has cooked by inserting a skewer into the cake and seeing whether it comes out clean

4) Remove the cake from the tin and leave to cool for five minutes, and then place onto a cooling rack and set aside to cool completely.

5) Once cool, cut into slices and sprinkle xylitol or coconut palm sugar, serve immediately!

Alternatively this cake should keep for a week if kept in an air tight tin.
