3 Ingredients Fruit Cake

A surprisingly deliciously moist fruit cake, which could double as a Christmas pudding with custard.

A friend of mine, Dot, shared this recipe, which she got from Facebook. She thought she should try this, even though it sounded ‘yucky’ — the chocolate milk didn’t do it for her either. However, she was pleasantly surprised – as was I, that it was actually quite yummy and scrumptious. Just to confirm it was edible for others, she got out the ultimate taste testers — kids are the best of course, before sharing it with me.


‘They absolutely loved it, polished it off and were looking for more,’ she said.


I was skeptical, not that I don’t believe my friend. But my taste buds were thinking twice about the mixed fruit being soaked in chocolate milk overnight. However, it is surprisingly delicious and I’m not usually a fruit cake fan. So, I’m sharing it because it’s a goer.
