Don’t be fooled! This might not have any actual added sugar, but it has tonnes of dried fruit, which are high in natural sugars. If you are on a low sugar diet, you can substitute all of the sugar in our recipes for xylitol (weight for weight).
A 2lb loaf tin
Flour sifter or sieve
200g dried tropical fruits (we use mangos, pineapple and apricots)
100g mixed fruit (sultanas, currants, raisins, cherries, figs, prunes)
300ml warm orange juice
70g ground almonds
30g desiccated coconut
40g wholemeal plain flour
70g self-raising flour
1 x teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
1 x teaspoon of baking powder
1 x teaspoon of mixed spice
1 x teaspoon of cinnamon
2 x large eggs whisked
Place the dried fruits in a bowl and pour over the warm orange juice. Let this sit for at least two hours or overnight, until the fruits are nice and plump and juicy.
Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
Sift all of your dry ingredients into a larger bowl, add the fruits and combine. Add the beaten eggs and stir to combine.
Pour the mixture into your prepared loaf tin and bake in the centre of the oven for 45 minutes.
