Easy Pineapple Fruit Loaf Recipe

Easy Pineapple Fruit Loaf Recipe – This recipe has been passed to me from my mother in law. It was a cake she baked as a child with her mother. I cannot quite believe how easy it is to bake! But, it does take a little while, so you may want to prepare the day before and leave yourself a few hours to get it done.

Serves: 10

Preparation: 15 minutes, plus cooling time midway through (approx 1.5hrs)

Baking: 1 hour 15 minutes baking

Skill: Easy

Tin required: 1 x 2lb loaf tin (in this recipe mine was smaller, only 1lb (22cmx11cm)

Ingredients :

350g/12oz caster sugar

225g/8oz unsalted butter

350g/12oz mixed fruit

125g/4oz glacier cherries, cut in half

1 tin crushed pineapple, slightly drained

450g/1lb self-raising flour

4 medium eggs, beaten

Pineapple Fruit Loaf Ingredients

Method :

Preheat your oven at 150c/gas mark 3. Grease and line (with greaseproof paper) a regular loaf tin, mine is 22cm x 11cm.

Pineapple Fruit Loaf Method 1
Place your prepared tin onto a baking tray to catch any cake that may flow over when baking.

Pineapple Fruit Loaf Method 2
Place in a big saucepan the sugar, butter, mixed fruit, cherries and crushed pineapple and slowly bring to the boil, so that your butter melts.

Pineapple Fruit Loaf Method 3
Once your butter has melted, boil for 5 minutes.

Pineapple Fruit Loaf Method 4
Set aside to completely cool. I left the mixture in the saucepan to cool and it took an hour and a half to completely cool.

Pineapple Fruit Loaf Method 5
Once cool (and it must be completely cool or the eggs will scramble) add the flour and eggs, mixing thoroughly.

Pineapple Fruit Loaf Method 6
Pour into the prepared loaf tin. There may be a little too much mixture for the tin, I had about 2 tablespoons too much, and left this out but just get in as much as you can or use a bigger tin!

Pineapple Fruit Loaf Method 7
Cook for 1 hour 15 minutes, or until golden in colour and a knife comes out clean when inserted in the middle. Place the tin and the baking tray on a cooling rack.

Pineapple Fruit Loaf Method 8
Once the cake has cooled, gently pull it out of the tin using the greaseproof paper.

Pineapple Fruit Loaf Method 9
Remove the greaseproof paper, and you’re done!

Pineapple Fruit Loaf Method 10
It takes a while but its so easy and delicious, so well worth the wait!
