Pumpkin Fruit Cake
Ingredients
1 orange
1 lemon
500g mixed dried fruit
60g chopped walnuts
250ml fresh orange juice (I only had 1 spare orange so made up the 250ml with sherry!)
1 tablespoon stewed apple
1 teaspoon carb soda
4 egg whites
260g cooked, mashed pumpkin
260g SR flour
2 teaspoons mixed spice
Preparation
Preheat oven to 165*.
Prepare a 20cm round tin.
Remove the zest from the orange and lemon.
Combine zest, fruit, nuts, juice and apple in a large saucepan. Bring to the boil. Stir in the carb soda and remove from heat.
Set aside to cool for 10 minutes.
Whisk egg whites until soft peaks form.
Add fruit mixture and pumpkin and fold in with a large metal spoon.
Stir in the SR flour and spice and gently fold in.
Spoon mixture into the prepared pan and pop some nuts on the top if you wish.
Bake for approx 1 1/4 hours until cooked.
Stand in the pan for 10 minutes before removing. and placing on a wire rack.

I have been thinking about making a fruit loaf / cake for xmas gifts recently, this looks like it will go onto my list along with KimmyH's boiled fruit cake at http://www.forumthermomix.com/index.php?topic=16491.0
