I’ve been trying to perfect a no added sugar fruit cake for several weeks and found this adapted recipe came out the best for taste. A batch of the 12 cake recipe made me two 4″ round and 2 6″ round cakes, adjusting the cooking time to 2 hours and 3 hours.
No added sugar fruit cake
3 1/2 lbs mixed dried fruit (currants, sultanas and raisins).
The grated rind and juice of 2 lemons.
2 tablespoons orange juice.
1 grated dessert apple
14 oz plain flour
12 oz low fat marg ( I use Flora)
Equivalent of 12 oz sugar in a granular substitute such as Splenda (approx 2 tblspns per oz of sugar)
