 Please pre order this item as it takes quite a bit of preparation time and saves you the preparation time!🎄❤️💚❤️💚🎄

The ingredients you need:

1 tsp vanilla extract, 

A orange 

150ml rum, plus extra for feeding

250g coconut oil or butter 





Put the dried fruit, zests and juice, rum, coconut oil and sugar into a large pan set over a medium heat. Give it a good mix, bring to the boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 5 mins until the sugar has dissolved. Tip the mixture into a large bowl and leave to cool for 30 mins.


Heat oven to 150C/130C fan/gas 2. Line a deep 20cm cake tin with a double layer of baking parchment, (optional extra: wrap a double layer of newspaper around the outside, tying it with string to secure.) Mix the chia seeds with 150ml water. (If you wish to use eggs you can leave out this step.) Leave to sit for 5 mins until gel-like and thick.


Add the remaining ingredients to the fruit mixture, along with the chia seed mix, and stir well, making sure there are no pockets of flour. Tip into your prepared tin, level the top with a spoon and bake in the centre of the oven for 2 hrs.


Remove the cake from the oven, poke holes in it with a skewer and spoon over 2 tbsp of rum. Leave the cake to cool completely in the tin.


To store, peel off the baking parchment, then wrap it in wax wraps or put in an airtight container. Feed the cake with 1-2 tbsp alcohol every fortnight, until you ice it. Don’t feed the cake for the final week to give the surface a chance to dry if you wish to ice it.

Best fruit cake ever!

I made this last year and it was the most delicious cake we have ever eaten! Now it's the new Christmas family favourite, I'm looking forward to a slice of this year's cake. 😋
