Festive Fruit Cake Recipe


What you’ll need…

1 ½ CUPS (160g) Sunbeam Australian Walnuts, roughly chopped

1 CUP (110g) Sunbeam Australian Macadamias, roughly chopped

1 CUP (150g) Angas Park Pitted Dates, chopped

375g Sunbeam Mixed Fruit

100g Sunbeam Glace Cherries

½ CUP (55g) Angas Park Mixed Peel

⅔ CUP (100g) Plain Flour

1 tsp Baking Powder

150g Caster Sugar

3 Eggs, whisked

1 tsp Vanilla Extract

2 tbsp Brandy



⅓ Cup Apricot jam

½ Cup Pure Maple Syrup

200g Angas Park Fruit Salad


Preheat the oven to 150°C. Line the base and sides of a 20cm springform cake pan.

Mix nuts, dried fruits, glace cherries, peel in a bowl. Sift in flour, baking powder then stir in sugar. Lightly whisk eggs with vanilla, then stir into the cake mixture until well combined. Pour into pan. Bake for 1 hour 30 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.

Cool cake in the pan for 15 minutes, then turn out onto a rack over a plate and remove baking paper. Pierce all over with a skewer. Drizzle with brandy, then wrap tightly in foil and leave in a cool, dry place for 2-3 days to mature.

For the topping: Soak fruit in Maple syrup, add boiling water to cover and let soften. Closer to serving, warm jam in a pan over low heat or in the microwave until runny. Arrange the maple-soaked fruits over the top of the cake in a decorative pattern, then brush with warm jam to set in place.
