Fruit cake gets a bad reputation for being dry and boring, but this recipe is neither of those things. Brown sugar helps ensure that the cake is moist, not dry. A combination raisins, candied cherries, melon, and citrus add tons of flavor. The cake is easy to mix together, so you can have it in the oven in no time. Candied fruit can be a little bit of a headache to dice since it is so sticky, try moistening your knife as you go for smooth cutting.

Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 150 grams brown sugar
  • 200 grams butter (melted)
  • 300 grams flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 100 grams candied cherries
  • 100 grams melon (candied, diced)
  • 100 grams citron (candied, diced)
  • 80 grams raisins

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and sugar until the mixture whitens.
  3. Add the melted butter to the mixture.
  4. Gradually add the flour, then the yeast.
  5. Using a spatula, gently and repeatedly incorporate different candied fruits and raisins.
  6. Pour the batter into a buttered cake pan.
  7. Place in the oven and immediately lower the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  8. Bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour. To check if the cake is ready, place the blade of a clean knife in the middle of cake. When it comes out clean and dry, then the cake is baked!
  9. You can find candied fruits in a delicatessen or with a confectioner. It's definitely worth the detour to put candied fruit of quality. But if you can not find any, do not panic! Replace them with candied fruits commercially available.

I agree with the recipe in that good quality candied fruit makes this cake excellent. I have also found it always takes an hour to bake, but check the cake at intervals.
