A mild fruit cake recipe for the lunch box
Are you looking for some new baking recipes that your kids will love? Do they love sultanas? This fruit cake recipe is a winner in our household, as it is a moist fruit cake, without being too overpowering in flavour for kids. Although you can make this recipe as a cake or loaf, I have found that it disappears faster when I bake it in a shallow slice tin and cut it up into smaller, bite-size squares. They are the perfect size for little fingers and for the lunch box.

This egg-free recipe is also handy if your child is allergic to eggs, or you are having a birthday party and need some safe options. Why don't you give it a try this weekend?

2 Tablespoons margarine

A small amount of ingredients, that you may already have in your pantry right now!


What To Do:

Step 1: In a medium saucepan, boil together the sugar, dried mixed fruit, water and margarine, until margarine has completely melted. Allow to cool.

Step 2: Preheat oven to 200 degrees, fan-forced.

Step 3: In a bowl, sift together the plain flour, self-raising flour, mixed spice and bi-carb soda.

Step 4: Pour the cooled wet mixture into the dry ingredients and combine with a large metal spoon. Do not over-mix.



Step 5: Pour into a lined rectangle slice tin and bake for 25 minutes, until browned on top and cooked through. Allow to cool.

Step 6: Cut up into bite-size squares and store in an airtight container.

These little squares are the perfect for the lunch box, snack box or for an after-school snack. For us adults, they also go quite nicely with a cuppa - if you're quick enough!
