Eggless Fruit Cake

Looking for a vegetarian, dairy-free yet moist fruit cake? it is....I've been wanting to make a fruit cake for some time now and yesterday I dropped by DoReMi, a baking ingredients shop just 5 mins drive from my hse and got all that I needed to make this moist, fruit and nut cake with just the amount of sweetness that will make you indulge in another slice....I got this recipe some time ago from the net (sory, I forgot to note the blog when I took down this recipe) you go....Eggless Fruit and Nut Cake

Ingredients :

250gm mixed fruits
150gm walnuts / pecans (chopped and roasted at 180degrees for about 6 minutes or till lightly browned)
1 cup muscovado / brown sugar (I used Organic Muscovado sugar)
1 cup water
1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
4 tbsp canola oil
1/2 tsp mixed spice
1/2 tsp salt
3 tsp orange zest

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp lemon juice
3/4 tsp pure vanilla extract

1. Put the fruits, water, orange juice in a pan. Add sugar, orange zest, mixed spice, salt and oil. Bring to a boil...let it simmer for about 5-8 minutes.
2. Turn off the heat, let it cool a bit and add lemon juice and vanilla extract. Leave it for about 20 minutes. Add in flour, baking soda and nuts and mix well.

3. Heat oven to 180 degrees. Grease a bundt pan and spoon the mixture in. Bake for about 40 minutes or till the cake tester comes out clean.
4. Cool over a wire rack before removing from the pan and slicing......:)
