Prepare Christmas Fruit Cake
- Step 1
Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease an 8” round cake tin and dust with maida. Heat sugar in a pan until it melts and becomes brown. Add warm water to make caramel syrup and keep aside.
- Step 2
Sieve together maida, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg, 2 to 3 times. Sprinkle 1 tbsp maida into the chopped dried fruits to coat them.
- Step 3
Mix softened butter and MILKMAID® in a bowl. Fold in the dry sieved ingredients, alternating with aerated soda and caramel syrup, until all are used. Add the chopped dry fruits and fold them into the batter carefully.
- Step 4
Pour the batter into the greased cake tin and bake for about 45 minutes at 180° C or until the cake is done. Remove from oven, cool for a while. Loosen the sides of the cake and transfer onto a plate. Cool slightly before cutting into pieces.
