Boiled pineapple fruit cake
Time for a little indulgence!
While cake is not exceptionally healthy, it's fine as an occasional indulgence. Just don't overdo the number of serves!

1/2 cup of desiccated coconut
375g (2.5C) of mixed dried fruit
1 cup sugar
2 tsp mixed spice
1 tsp bicarb soda
Pinch of salt
1 cup self raising flour
1 cup Plain flour
2 eggs beaten
Boil the first eight ingredients together in a saucepan.
Allow to cool. (if it is not allowed to cool it will curdle the egg)
Add sifted flours and beaten eggs
Place mixture in 18cm square, lined tin.
Cook for 1 – 1.25 hours at 160 C (shorter time if fan forced)
Test with skewer.
Leave in the tin for 5 mins, then turn onto a rack to cool.
