Such an easy bake to make, everything goes in one bowl, stir and bake for an hour - simple!

Servings: 10 slices
Author: Glutarama
  • 300 g Dried Fruit any combination but I tend to use mixed fruit
  • 250 g Light Muscovado Sugar
  • 300 ml Strong Hot Tea I normally use 3 teabags and remove them before pouring onto fruit
  • 350 g Gluten Free Self Raising Flour
  • 1 Large Egg
  1. Boil kettle and add hot water to 3 teabags in a measuring jug, leave to steep whilst weighing other ingredients.
  2. Measure out the fruit and sugar in a large bowl, pour on tea (with teabags removed) stir and leave for 8 or more hours
  3. Read a book, watch 3 films, go to bed.....
  4. Stir sugar and fruit mixture to mix in any sugar that has settled at the bottom of the bowl, weight out the flour and mix into fruit finally add beaten egg.
  5. Pour into a 2lb loaf tin. Now you may have a bit extra, see how it goes but this cake does not rise massively so don't be scared to fill the tin quite high.
  6. Cook on 150C/300F/Gas 2 for 1 hour 20 mins before checking, it will be crispy on top.
  7. This cake is super scrummy served with butter and a cup of tea!
