4 Ingredients Xmas cake is a success again this year and it’s yummm
1 kg mixed fruit (I add a pack of glacé cherries)
2 Cup Chocolate Milk
1/2 to 3/4 Cup Baileys (my preference)
2 Cups self raising Flour
Soak fruits in milk and Baileys for 24hours.
Fold in flour. Low heat and Line slow cooker with 2-3 layers of baking paper around it & underneath.. (I also double a long strip & put in first so easier to pull out when cooked). Pour batter in & even out. Cook on low for 7-8 hours. Tea towel under the lid. EASY!!! ?
