An extremely refreshing, light fruit cake which is low fat too, only about a half cup oil is used for 2 cakes ,so that makes it 1/4 cup per cake!, the best part is that it is so quick- no elaborate beating ,folding, just dump everything into one large bowl it is ready to go into the oven!!


                        Fresh Orangey~Fruit Cake


(makes 2 cakes)

  • Orange juice- 1/2 cup
  • Milk- 1/2 cup
  • Flour- 2 cups
  • Baking powder-3 tsp
  • Candied mixed fruit- 1 cup
  • Orange rind, grated- 1 tsp.
  • Salt- 1/2 tsp
  • Eggs- 3
  • Sugar- 1 1/2 cups
  • Vegetable oil- 1/2 cup
  • 1 orange, cut into segments

For the fat-free glaze-

Combine half cup fresh orange juice with 2 tbsp sugar and 2 tsp cornflour, boil till it thickens, let cool .


Combine everything together in a large bowl and stir well, pour into prepared pans and bake for 45 mins at 180 deg.C .Drizzle glaze over cooled cake and decorate with orange segments. I am sending this one to Zlamushka for her spoonful of christmas event-http://www.burntmouth.com/2007/10/spoonful-of-christmas.html

A nice post Bindiya! I never could develop a taste fr lemon cake, but I think oranges might just work, esp when you have that "low-fat" tag next to it:)
