Fruit Cake seems to be one of those things that you either love, or you hate. Personally I also find them really hard to bake and not have them dry out, so this year was a double challenge to make the perfect gluten free fruit cake without it drying out. Like most recipes it’s a personal taste on what you’d like to add, obviously if you have a nut allergy you can exclude those. If you like your cake frosted with frosting you can also do that too.

Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup chopped or sliced mixed candied fruit
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 – 2 cups sultana raisins
  • 1/2 cup chopped dried apricots
  • 1/2 cup chopped dried apples
  • 2-1/2 cups Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup soft butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2-1/2 cups applesauce
  • 2 teaspoons of rum extract
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice

 

Preparation:

  • In a bowl, combine candied fruit, pecans, walnuts, raisins, apricots, and apples.
  • Add 1 cup  of the flour and stir to coat the nuts and fruit.
  • In another bowl, cream together your butter and sugar; then add eggs and mix well.
  • Add applesauce and rum extract.
  • Combine baking soda, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg, cloves, allspice and remaining flour and stir into applesauce mixture.
  • Stir fruit mixture in with the applesauce mixture.
  • Pour into a greased and floured 10-inch fruitcake pan.
  • Bake at 325° for 60-65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
  • Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Once it is cooled completely you can ice and serve!
