4 Ingredients Xmas cake

Mixed Fruit (including glacé cherries) 1 kg
Chocolate Milk 2 Cups
Baileys (1/2 to 3/4 Cup, as preferred) 1/2 to 3/4 Cup
Self-raising Flour 2 Cups


Crafting this delectable cake is an adventure in itself. Follow these steps to create a masterpiece that will have everyone raving about your baking prowess.

  1. Soaking the Fruits for Flavour: Begin by soaking the mixed fruit, including glacé cherries, in a combination of chocolate milk and Baileys for a full 24 hours. This infusion of flavors adds depth and complexity to your cake, making every bite a burst of delightful surprises.
  2. Folding in the Flour: After the fruits have soaked to perfection, gently fold in the self-raising flour. This step requires a delicate touch to ensure that the flour is incorporated evenly, resulting in a consistent texture that’s both soft and airy.
  3. Preparing the Slow Cooker: To create the perfect environment for your cake to bake, line your slow cooker with 2-3 layers of baking paper both around and underneath it. Additionally, place a long strip of baking paper in first to make it easier to pull the cake out once it’s cooked.
  4. Baking with Patience: Pour the batter into the prepared slow cooker and even it out for a uniform distribution. Set your slow cooker to low heat and allow the cake to bake for 7-8 hours. Placing a tea towel under the lid helps maintain the ideal moisture level during baking.
  5. Unveiling Your Creation: After the patiently awaited baking time, carefully remove the cake from the slow cooker. The aroma that fills the air is a testament to the scrumptious treat you’ve created. Let it cool before slicing and savoring each delightful bite.
