Fruit Cake

4 Aug

Recipie and pictures from the Norwegian baking blog Passion for Baking by Manuela Kjeilen.


  • 100 g butter, room temperature
  • 200 g sugar
  • 50 g cream fresh
  • 3 egg
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla extract
  • 3 tbs. vanilla pudding powder (can be excluded)
  • 1 tbs. Lemon or orange juice
  • 210 g flour
  • 1 tsp. Baking powder
  • 250-500g fruit


Mix together soft butter, sugar, cream fresh and vanilla pudding powder till it becomes an airy mix. Add the fresh lemon/orange, vanilla extract and the eggs and mix it a while longer. Mix flour and baking powder in a bowl, then mix it all together for about 2 min, till you get a nice smooth mix. Butter a baking-form and add the dough (smooth out the surface). Add the fruit at the top. Have the cake in the oven for 40-50 min at 180*C. Check the cake with a pin after 40 min, if it comes out dry the cake is done. Add baking paper over the cake the last 30 min it’s in the oven.

You may add some sugar icing on top to make the cake look better
