Hi everyone! 

I am very thankful for the opportunity to share my Gluten Free Boiled Fruit Cake recipe with you! My family consists of 5, with 4 Gluten Free members. Unlike many, eating Gluten Free wasn't a choice we made it was a medical decision. It is often difficult to find tasty Gluten Free recipes so when I do find one we like - I love to share it.

I combined a few different Fruit Cake recipes to make this one work for me. I am all for simple, easy Gluten Free recipes, I hope you like this one as much as we do!

Gluten Free Boiled Fruit Cake

2 x Packets of Mixed Fruit 
1 pk glaced cherries 
1 pk chopped almonds (if you like) 
1/2 cup rum or any alcohol you prefer (if you don't want to use this much alcohol you can use flavoured milk or a combination of 1/4 cup water & 1/4 cup of rum) 
1 tbs honey 185g butter, chopped coarsely (I use nutelex so the cake is dairy free) 
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar 
3 eggs, lightly beaten 
1 1/4 cups GF plain flour (Available in health food section)
1/4 cup GF Self raising flour 
1/2 tsp bicarb soda

Soak the Fruit in the rum for a couple of hours.
Place fruit, butter, honey, brown sugar in saucepan & boil. Then put aside to cool.

Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius
Grease and flour pan or line with baking paper (I used a silicone Tree shaped pan for my cake)

Once cooled add eggs, sifted flours & bicarb and mix all together. 

Place in the oven & cook until brown and springs back when touched in the middle. (Mine took approximately 45 mins)

It makes quite a bit so I made little fruit cakes as well in my muffin trays. Or you can use a large rectangular pan & make a slab / sheet cake size.

Thanks for having me as a guest on your blog Naomi!
Love from Maria xoxo
