Christmas Fruit Cake
Christmas Fruit Cake - Primal, Paleo, and Clean Eating
Fruit cake always makes me think of Christmas and this recipe is one I got from my mother law, but it is a hand me down from her mother in law. Jay loves fruit cake, so it is nice to have a recipe that he likes for special occasions and Christmas.
I swapped out the wheat flour and normal sugar; I like using a mix of dried fruit soaked in a little rum to make sure the cake stays nice and moist.
3 egg whites
1/4cup coconut cream
1/3cup maple syrup
1/2tsp. baking soda
1/2cup coconut flour
2tsp. vanilla bean paste
1/2cup butter, melted
1 1/2cups fruit cake mix
Preheat oven to 180 degrees C/ 350 degrees F
Shift the flour and baking soda together in a bowl.
In another bowl, mix together the 2 eggs, melted butter, coconut cream, vanilla and maple syrup until it is foamy.
Mix together the wet and dry ingredients leave the fruit cake mix to one side.
In a bowl, whisk the egg whites until they are soft peaks.
Mix in the fruit cake mix to the batter.
Fold the egg whites into the batter.
Pour the batter into a lined cake tin.
Bake for 30 minutes at 180 degrees C/ 350 degrees F.
