Mocha Fruitcake

Mocha Fruitcake
serves 20
ProPoints per serve 6
Prep: 10 minutes (plus overnight soaking time)
Cooking: 40 minutes


dried mixed fruit 1kg
strong coffee 2 cups (500ml)
self-raising flour 2 cups (300g) sifted
fruit and nut chocolate 150g, chopped

  1. Place fruit and hot coffee in a large heatproof bowl, cover and set aside to soak overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 160C, line the base and two long sides of a 18cm x 28cm lamington tin with non-stick baking paper.
  3. Add flour and chocolate to fruit mixture and stir with a wooden spoon until well combined.  Spread evenly into prepared tin, place in preheated oven and bake for 40 minutes or until skewer inserted into the centre comes out cleanly.
  4. Remove and set aside in the tin on a wire rack to cool completely.
This is out of the Secrets of Success cookbook.  It is one of the easiest and yummiest fruit cakes you will ever make.


  1. Thanks to you Karen, my MTM is going to be in seventh heaven when I give her this PP recipe. She was only lamenting last weekend that she would have to work it out as it is one of her staple Christmas fare. I thought I had lost your link, and posted the recipe on the boards also, but couldn't give you the credit you deserved sorry as I couldn't remember the title of your blog.

  2. No worries. This is one of my favourites too!
