Preparation

Reduced Fat Rich Fruit Cake

Step 1: Pre-heat oven to 170ºC/325ºF/Gas Mark 3 or 150ºC for a fan assisted oven. Grease and line a 20cm (8inch) round, deep cake tin with baking parchment.

Step 2: Put the dates in a saucepan with the orange juice. Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 10 mins, stiring occasionally, until softened. Leave to cool, then blend in a food processor until smooth.

Step 3: Beat in a few drops of Vanilla and Almond Extract, the eggs and treacle. Mix the flour, baking powder, spice and dried fruit together in a bowl. Gradually work the date mixture into the dry ingredients and transfer to the prepared tin.

Step 4: Smooth the top and bake for 1 hour until firm to the touch and a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Cool in the tin.

Step 5: Wrap in foil and store for 24 hours before serving.

Step 6: If decorating, brush with apricot glaze. Place the Ready Rolled Icing over the cake and gently trim the edge. Decorate with sprinkles of your choice.
