1kg dried mixed fruit
700mls chocolate milk
cooking oil spray
2 cups (300g) self-raising flour
Soak the mixed fruit in the chocolate milk overnight in the fridge.
Preheat the camp oven to approx. 150 degrees C. Grease a 25cm square cake tin and line the base and sides with baking paper, with the paper coming over the sides by about 5cm. Spray the paper with some cooking spray.
Sift the flour into the soaked fruit one cup at a time and mix in well after each addition. Pour the mixture into the prepared tin.
Bake for 1½-2 hours. After 1½ hours insert a skewer or cake tester into the centre of the cake and if it comes out clean your cake is ready.
Cool the cake in the tin for 30 minutes then turn onto a wire rack to fully cool.
Whilst this recipe calls for Chocolate milk, you can substitute with Iced Coffee, Orange Juice, Apple Juice, Black Tea for example. Many have also said they have substituted with Pineapple Juice or crushed Pineapple.
NB: You may need extra flour if using tea or the juices to make it moister.
