BABY’S FIRST CHRISTMAS CAKE

SUITABLE FROM 12 MONTHS

INGREDIENTS

50g Pitted dates
40g Dried figs
30g Dried apricots
40g Cranberries
40g Unsalted butter, melted
35g Muscovado sugar
35ml Runny Honey
1 Unwaxed medium orange
¼ tsp Mixed Spice
INSTRUCTIONS

Pre-heat your oven to 140C.
Process the dried figs, apricots and dates in Béaba Babycook® until chopped but not turned into a paste.
Zest and juice your orange. Reserve both juice and zest.
Put the chopped fruit and the cranberries in the steaming basket of your Béaba Babycook® and steam for 5min until soft.
Remove the stick fruit mix to a bowl and add the butter, sugar, honey, orange juice and zest, mixed spice, cinnamon and egg. Mix well with a spatula while the fruit is still hot.
Add the cocoa, flour, ground almonds, baking soda and bicarbonate and mix well.
Spoon the mixture into the 6 portions of your Béaba multiportion or use a bun tray and bake at 140C for 30min.
Check the mini-cakes are done by inserting a cake tester. These are gorgeously moist cakes so a little stickiness is expected.
Let them cool down completely in the Béaba multiportion/bun tray on a rack.
These cakes freeze really well in the Béaba multiportion but being fruitcakes they’ll last a very long time in the silicone container with the lid tightly on.
