Good to know
Suitable for Vegetarians
Produced and packed in a Dairy Free environment
1 x 650g Delicious Alchemy Christmas Gluten Free Fruit Cake Mix
110g soft unsalted butter or dairy free alternative
2 large eggs
75ml brandy or orange juice
Zest of 1 orange (optional)
Before you get mixing, preheat the oven to 160C/140C for fan-assisted ovens. Line the base and sides of a 7 inch baking tin with greaseproof paper. Make sure the paper sticks out 2.5cm (about an inch) above the rim of the tin.
In a large bowl, mix the butter (or dairy free alternative) and zest (if using) then add in 45ml of the brandy or orange juice. Whisk the eggs separately and then add to the bowl along with the dry cake mix.
Mix together for 2½ minutes. You can pop it all in a mixer if that’s easier. Once it has all come together, put the mix into your prepared tin and bake for 1 hour 45 minutes.
Once baked to perfection, allow to cool for 20 minutes, then pierce the cake several times with a skewer and pour on the remaining 30ml of brandy or orange juice until it is all absorbed. Wrap up well and store until required. Decorate with an icing of your choice.
