Christmas Fruit Cake Recipe

Using YesYouCan Self Raising Flour


  • 2 cups YesYouCan Self Raising Flour

  • 1 cup unsalted butter

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar

  • 1/2cup caster sugar

  • 3 eggs (or YesYouCan Vegan Egg Replacer)

  • 5 tbsp brandy

  • 1 cup orange juice

  • orange zest

  • 1 cup nuts (pecans, walnuts, and hazelnuts chopped),

  • 1 3/4 cup assorted dried fruits

  • pinch of salt

  • 1 round cake tin


  1. Soak the dried fruits in 3 tbsp of brandy overnight.

  2. Grease the bottom of the round cake tin.

  3. Preheat the oven to 160°C.

  4. In a large bowl beat the butter and sugar using an electric mixer or hand mixer until it becomes light and fluffy.

  5. Add the eggs one at a time by beating well after each addition. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.

  6. Add the 2 tbsp brandy, 1 cup orange juice and zest of orange. Mix it up gently using a wooden spatula.

  7. Fold that mixture in the ground nuts and all the dried fruits. Keep this aside.

  8. In a separate bowl mix YesYouCan Self Raising Flour and salt. Gently and slowly fold the flour into the cake batter using a wooden spatula. The consistency should be really thick. Scrape the batter into the cake tin and evenly spread it out.

  9. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hr and reduce the oven temperature to 150C degrees and bake it for another 1 hour 30 minutes or until a long skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean.

  10. Remove the cake from oven and place on a wire rack and let it cool completely.

  11. Using a skewer poke holes in the top surface of the cake and brush it with a little brandy
