X is for Xmas cake - with only 3 ingredients! This is an Annabel Langbein recipe, which I have made before. It's no. 24 of 26 alphabetical bakes.

1kg dried fruit (I used prunes, apricots, raisins, cranberries, banana)
2 1/2 c milk (I used rice)
2 3/4 c flour (I used spelt)

Extras - you can add a couple tbsp brandy/rum/sherry, some chopped nuts or spices (eg cinnamon, nutmeg) if you like

In a large bowl soak the fruit in the milk overnight.

Preheat the oven to 160C. Line a 23cm cake tin with baking paper. Spoon the mixture into the tin and smooth out. I decorated the top with whole almonds.

Bake for 1 1/4 hours until cooked through. Loosen the cake in the tin but leave to cool in the tin.

Once cooled, turn out and sprinkle with icing sugar if desired. This is a lovely moist fruit cake free of gluten, dairy and sugar!
