Little Fruit & Nut Cakes

"A delicious single serve fruit & nut cake treat, perfect for gatherings or to just have on hand for a nice cuppa. They keep for a long time in an air tight container and also make a lovely gift on a nice plate done up with cellophane and ribbon. Also nice to decorate the tops with a cherry or nuts."

  1. Even though these kinds of tasties remind me of the end-of-year holidays, I never tire of making & enjoying them almost anytime of year! Fortunately I still had a small amount of the cherries left from the holidays (although they were green!), & that worked out just fine! Made these for my other half to take to & share with a group meeting he attends weekly, but held back 6 of them just to enjoy here at home! Thanks for sharing this keeper of a recipe ~ Will be making them again later in the year! [Made & reviewed in Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup tag]
