Pod Cast: Grandmas Boiled Fruit Cake

Adapting Grandmas Boiled Fruit Cake recipe was surprisingly easily. I swapped the butter for pumpkin, subbed Gluten Free flours for the Wheat flour and left out the sugar. I thought one can of pineapple and a packet of mixed fruit would suffice and an extra cup of sugar wasn’t really required (no wonder Granddad had diabetes!). This cake bakes for a long time… a really long time, but it’s worth the wait. Grandmas Boiled Fruit Cake is moist, slightly fruity and wonderfully nostalgic. It’s not firm or hard like a boxed fruit cake is (you can find  a firmer recipe in my eBook ‘Mummy Made.It A Healthy Christmas’; it’s soft and melts in your mouth. Grandmas Boiled Fruit Cake is easy to make and tastes like Christmas past.
