Easy Fruit Cake Recipe with Crazy Jacks

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.

The Ultimate Christmas Cake Recipe

Over the past few years I have gotten into making my very own Christmas cakes. Last year I made one. This year I’m attempting two! I always use the same easy Christmas cake recipe. I’m not sure how I came about it. I think over the years I have added my own bits to it. Now it really is the ultimate easy cake recipe. I think the most effort needed is to weigh out all the ingredients.
