Many have also said they have substituted with Pineapple Juice or crushed Pineapple. Even Marmalade has been used successfully. It is a matter of playing around with ingredients.
Our Facebook page received lots of comments when we popped this recipe up. Here’s what Sheryll said:
“I made this as a Christmas Cake and added the traditional spices and some blanched almonds to make it more ‘luxe’.
I chose Pineapple Juice instead of Tea and swapped a little of the dried fruit for crushed pineapple for extra moistness as we are ‘soggy cake people’. Even my non-fruit cake hubby thought it was delicious”

How To Make 3 Ingredient Fruit Cake
- 1 kg mixed fruit
- 3 cups black tea
- 3 cups self-raising flour
Soak your fruit in Tea overnight so that the fruit softens and steeps. Preheat oven to 125 C (257F). Stir flour into soaked fruit, and mix well. Add more tea if the mixture is too dry.
It is quite a thick mixture but sometimes the fruit really absorbs the liquid and it is hard to dampen the flour.
Spoon mixture into a 22cm (9″) lined cake tin. Bake for 2½ hours or until cooked through. Remove and leave to cool. Wrap in tin foil or place in an airtight container.
This Fruit Cake keeps for a month when stored correctly.
