Citrus Coconut Christmas Cake

I found Christmas cake recipe from sunbeam mixed fruits. So I decided to test out. I change the pistachio to cherries glazed to gives a  extra moist look. I didn’t put icing sugar to garnish as I don’t like it too sweet.

The recipe is easy to make and its yummy. For recipe look for sunbeam products.

Ingredients

150 g unsalted butter
3/4 c caster sugar
1 Tsp vanilla extract 
5 eggs
1 lemon, zest and juice
1 orange, zest and juice
3/4 c  coconut meal
500 g  mixed fruits
80 g  cherries glazed

Method

Preheat oven to 150°C.  Grease  with butter and line a 23 cm round spring form pan with baking paper.

Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and eggs one at a time beating well after each addition.

Stir in zests, juices, coconut meal, mixed fruit and cherries.Bake for 1 hour 20 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.

Note: You can add pistachios if you like as the original recipe. I prefer cherries glazed. Oven temperature vary, you might need less or more time. You may sprinkle your cake with icing sugar. I didn’t use icing sugar.
