Fruitcake Loaf and Cupcakes

Ingredients to make Fruitcake Loaf and Cupcakes

  • 2 cups Self Raising Flour/ all purpose flour (Maida)
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup refined oil
  • 4 large sized eggs
  • 4 tbsp milk (only if required)
  • 1 cup tutti frutti
  • 1/4 cup mixed nuts (cashews and almonds, chopped)

How to make Fruitcake Loaf and Cupcakes

  1. Preheat oven to 150°C. Prepare a loaf pan and set out cupcake liners. (I used muffin cups.)
  2. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Mix the tutti frutti and nuts with the flour and keep it aside. (This prevents the fruit and nuts sinking to the bottom.)
  3. In a large bowl, cream/beat the oil and sugar till it's frothy. Add the eggs one by one and beat it well after each addition. Next, add the vanilla extract and mix it well. Fold in the flour mixture 2 tbsp at a time, till it is completely used up. (The mixture should be very thick but easy to spoon out.)
  4. If the batter is dry then add 3- 4 tbsp milk to moisten it. Spoon the batter into a loaf pan. Fill it 3/4 and allow it to rise in the rest of the pan. Spoon any remaining batter into the muffin/cupcake liners.
  5. Bake for 50 minutes- 1 hour in the preheated oven till a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean. Let it cool for 10 minutes in the pan, then place it on a wired rack.
  6. Once cooled, cut into slices and serve.
