Easy Pumkpin Fruit Cake Recipe

This is another recipe I found in my mum's recipe folder. It was one that she got from her Homemakers group at church. I have made this cake so many times as it is just so easy and tastes really great. It is one that I used to put in lunch boxes for morning tea break or when I am having an afternoon tea party.


125g butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 cup cold mashed pumpkin
2 cups SR flour
1 pkt mixed fruit

Preheat oven to 170C for fan forced and 180 for normal oven. Grease and line a large round or square tin with greasproof or baking paper.
Peel and cut up pumpkin. Boil until cooked, then cool down and when cold, mash.
Cream butter and sugar then add eggs, one at a time and beat well. Add the mashed pumpkin and continue to mix. Add the fruit and then the flour and mix together.
Bake in oven for approx 1 hour. Test with a skewer and if it comes out clean or cake springs back when lightly touched in the middle, it is ready to take out of oven. Turn out onto a wire rack and cool down. Serve either plain or else with some butter spread on the slices.
