For the Spiced Chocolate Fruitcake

  • 500g raisins
  • 100g pitted prunes, chopped finely
  • ½ cup rum (or brandy/ port)
  • ½ cup water
  • 50g milk chocolate, chopped roughly

  • 2 eggs, lightly whisked
  • 1 cup wholemeal flour
  • 1 tbsp garam masala

To serve, optional

  • Vanilla ice-cream or custard

To prepare the Spiced Chocolate Fruitcake

  1. Preheat oven to 180C (160C fan-forced) and line a 15cm diameter round cake tin with baking paper.
  2. Place raisins, chopped prunes, rum and water in a medium saucepan over medium high heat. Bring to a gentle simmer, reduce heat to low and simmer for another 5 minutes. Take off the heat and transfer to a large mixing bowl.
  3. Add chopped chocolate, milk and dark, to the warm rum and raisin mixture and mix well to help the chocolate melt.  Set aside for 10 minutes for the mixture to cool slightly.
  4. When ready, add oil and eggs and mix well. Add flour and garam masala and continue to mix until all the flour has incorporated into the batter.
  5. Spoon batter into the baking paper-lined cake tin. Cover the top of the tin with a sheet of baking paper long enough to wrap around the whole tin. Secure with kitchen string.
  6. Bake in a pre-heated oven for 50 minutes. Remove from oven, wrap in kitchen towel and place on a rack to cool overnight.

 To serve, optional

  • When ready to serve, unwrap the cake and slice. Serve on its own or with some ice cream and /or custard.
