It's really my kind of Christmas fruit cake, I just do not fancy the usual fruit cakes people usually bake and many bakeries sell during Christmas season
So, here it is, with a little modification
I used cake flour instead, and besides chopped dried apricots, I used dried mixed fruits too
Pretty isn't it? And it's yummy too :) Perfect treat for Christmas gathering :)

Hi Alice, this looks absolutely good. Loves the mix fruits.ReplyDelete
What a coincidence, I baked Ann's apricot slice just today and it turned out great. Now seeing that you used mixed dried fruit to make it more "Christmas-y", I want to try that too. Can you tell me how much cake flour did you use? 175g as Ann wrote, or you reduced the amount? Because I think 175g cake flour looks quite bigger in volume compared with 175g plain flour. Can you please kindly explain?
And may I know what kinds of dried fruit did you use? Did you use all sour kinds (apricots, cherries, cranberries...) or both sour and sweet kinds (like including raisins)?
Thank you very much.
May you have a happy holiday.
Alice, this is simply pretty.ReplyDelete

Melly..ya nih, bawaannya baking yg xmas theme trus hihi....ReplyDelete
hi Amelia, thks :)
hi RVPN, thks for dropping by my blog :)
i used 175g cake flour, the same amount as what Ann used with plain flour..yes I agree that it usually will be bigger but not this one, perhaps cos of the dried fruits, I actually added the quantity a little more to 120g - 50g dried mixed fruits and 70g dried apricot :)
the dried mixed fruits i used those sold in supermarket in boxes, the brand is silver bird if i'm not mistaken, sorry i was looking for the box but i threw it away already
hope i can be a help :)
u too enjoy the holiday :)
hi Angel, Lena and Joyce, thks so much :)
