This fruity cake is terrific at Christmas, but it goes well with a cup of tea any time of the year.

This cake is wonderful - fruity and complex but not at all heavy. I made it exactly as written, and in my convection oven it was perfect at 90 minutes. I love nuts so might add some next time. Thank you for a really delicious recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 300F; line an 8-inch square cake pan with foil and set aside.
  2. Put sugar, butter and fruits (with juice from tinned pineapple) in a saucepan over medium to medium-low heat; note that all currants or all raisins can be used instead of both; stir often until the butter melts, then remove from heat.
  3. Note that you could also do that in a microwave oven.
  4. Beat eggs with a whisk until frothy in a small bowl; slowly whisk eggs into fruit mixture.
  5. Combine all dry ingredients together then add all at once to wet mixture; stir well.
  6. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 1-1/2- 2 hours, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in centre comes out clean.
  7. When cool enough to handle, remove from pan and store in an airtight container.
