Fruited Tea Ring - 12 Days of Christmas Special


On the 7th day of our Christmas special we have a delicious Fruited Tea Ring cake.  It's perfect for those who find the classic fruit cake a little too heavy...but still has all that fruity flavour!


Fruited Tea Ring

  • 2 1/4 cup plain flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • Grated peel 1 lemon
  • 1 cup chopped mixed candied fruits

  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
  • 1 cup butter
  • 226 grams of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 eggs

Stir together flour and baking powder; set aside.  Combine lemon peel, candied fruits, currants, raisins and pecans; set aside.  In a large bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter, cream cheese and sugar until fluffy.  Add eggs two at a time, beating thoroughly after each addition.  At low speed add flour mixture gradually and mix until blended. Fold in fruits and pecans.  Turn into greased 12 cup fluted tube pan (non-stick).  Bake in a preheated oven 180 degrees for 1 hour, or until pick inserted in centre comes out clean.
