Easy Fruit Cake Recipe with Crazy Jacks

**This post may contain affiliate links.

I love to try out new snacks and foods. So when we were sent a selection of Crazy Jacks organic foods to try out I knew exactly what I was going to do with them.

It’s Mr B’s birthday this week and his favourite type of cake is fruit cake, so that’s what I’m going to bake for his birthday.

Crazy Jacks is a dedicated organic and natural producer of many different products including grains, fruits, nuts & seeds, herbs & spices as well as pulses. It’s one of the brands under Community Foods who have been around for over 40 years. Community Foods also have the Jumble Bee brand. These are mainly healthy snack foods such as trail mixes, banana chips and dried tropical fruits.

I’m loving the terrific trail mix form Jumble bee. It’s handy to keep in my handbag for munching on when I have my pregnancy cravings!

They are all available to buy from most supermarkets and all good independent health food stores.
