Gluten Free Christmas Fruit Loaf

This is one of my family's absolute FAVORITE Christmas cakes.

This Chrissy loaf is dense, but it sparkles with Christmas flavors!

A great option to have for Chrissy snacks or to take for a party plate.


  • 600 g mixed dried fruit or a mix of the following (raisins, apricot, sultanas)

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean extract or paste

  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg

  • zest and juice from 1 orange

  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

  • 3 organic eggs

  • 200 g (2 cups) ground almonds

  • 50 g walnuts


  • Preheat your oven to 160°C fan forced.

  • Prepare a 20 cm round cake tin with baking paper lining the sides and the base.

  • Combine dried fruit, spice, vanilla, orange zest + juice, olive oil and eggs.

  • Add the almonds and walnuts and mix through.

  • Spoon Christmas Cake batter into your baking tin.

  • Bake for 1 hour and 30 minutes. Check with a skewer to see if it comes out clean, if not bake for another 30 minutes.

  • Cover the top if necessary to prevent over browning,

  • Remove from the tin and store in an airtight container in the fridge.
